Diana Trent and Tom Ballard, two elderly residents of Bournemouth's Bayview Retirement Home, are determined not to grow old gracefully. The pair of geriatric delinquents spend their time finding new ways to make life difficult for Bayview manager Harvey Baines; a shallow, profit-driven man who seems to be liked only by his secretary, who is hopelessly in love with him.
