Synopsis: Alec Firth is having an affair with his assistant Liz and has organised his domestic life so that they can go to Spain without making his wife Maggie suspicious. What could go wrong? Plenty as the rest of the family arrive on the doorstep in rapid succession; Phoebe, Alec’s mother, who has discharged herself from the old people’s home; Alec’s son Jamie who has a broken ankle, and finally his daughter Mandy who is heavily pregnant and refuses to marry the father.
