George Russell, chauffeur, odd-job man, and all-round assistant to the retired Colonel Maynard, has a fairly cushy lifestyle.

George serves his employer faithfully but his workload is relatively light and he's perfected a way of filling the slower days: he's an habitual womaniser with a cheeky charm, and has driven away more than his far share of female cook-cum-housekeepers with his amorous advances!

Following the latest departure, the local employment agency comes up with a replacement almost immediately - and it seems that George has finally met his match in the formidable Gabrielle Dragon.
