Redvers Potter suddenly finds himself facing enforced retirement when his family sweet firm, Pottermints 'the hotter mints', is taken over
The time has come for Redvers Potter to relinquish his role as head of the family confectionary firm, Pottermints - his company has been taken over and he is now going into enforced retirement. His wife, Aileen, is not too happy about having her husband under her feet either, but Potter is determined to make the most of his retirement. He decides he will give people the benefit of his managerial experience - even if they don't want it.
Our Review: The star was in his element as the self-important busy body, and helped the quality scripts of writer Roy Clarke come alive. Every episode would end with Potter and the Vicar chatting nonchalantly, with an abundance of non sequiturs and neither really listening to the other.
