Further details

Mrs Doyle has a new fancy man in her life, Pat Mustard the milkman. Unsettled by this turn of events, Ted and Dougal investigate, and discover a rash of unnaturally hairy babies in the district. Pat has been delivering more than just milk.

You have to get up very early in the morning to catch out a milkman, so that's exactly what the Fathers do. Some good detective work later and Pat gets the sack. But, despite lying down on the job, Pat refuses to take his dismissal lying down...

With Dougal acting as Craggy Island's newest milkman, the race is on to de-active the bomb that is on board his milk float, placed there by the dastardly Mustard!
