On The Rocks - The Complete Series 1 And 2

It's the late 1930s, and even on the remote island of St Martin's in the Isles of Scilly war seems inevitable. But the islanders have their own battles to contend with, stuck on a rock flung 27 miles out into the Atlantic with only their natural grit and gallows humour to see them through.

When a Penzance GPO man arrives to check on the post office, the islanders decide he must be the undertaker come to deal with the body of the late post office manager. And then they 'discover' that he is not an undertaker after all. So he must be a spy. Obviously.
