With Dermot and Maria's wedding just weeks away, the Brown household is in crisis. Dermot wants to ask his childhood friend, Buster, to be best man. But Agnes has set her heart on Mark, her eldest son, filling the position. And Buster is a crook of whom both the strong-willed Maria and Mrs Brown strongly disapprove.

On top of this, Mrs Brown's close friend and neighbour, Winnie, is distraught. Her husband Jacko has been rushed to hospital and can't possibly afford to pay for the operation he urgently needs. And, needing cash for his wedding, Dermot has allowed himself to get embroiled in one of Buster's stupid - and dodgy - money-making scams.

It's time for Mrs Brown to exercise all her diplomatic skills, starting with "accidentally" letting Maria know all about Dermot's best man decision...
