Corbett was cast as Timothy Lumsden, a 41-year-old librarian (ageing, eventually, to 48) still tied to his mother's apron strings. Timothy was a smart enough chap, witty and bright, although his discomfort with women often caused him to blush, stammer and blurt out stupid things in their presence. This awkwardness owed to the overpowering influence of his mother, Phyllis, a scheming, spiteful harridan determined to undermine her son's confidence and to keep him firmly under her thumb. Phyllis Lumsden was truly a monstrous creation, so hideous that it was difficult to feel too much sympathy for anyone prepared to hang around such a Gorgon, especially as Timothy seemed to discount matricide as a suitable solution to his problems. His father, Sidney, suffered similarly and often joined Timothy in silent defiance of Phyllis but she usually managed to crush their resistance as would a steamroller. Timothy's sister, Muriel, who had escaped the family home, was often on hand with sympathetic advice.
