Timmy doesn't want to be a 40-something mummy's boy - he dreams of being a lothario, an adventurer and a star player in the local amateur dramatics qroup - but he's still not allowed out until he's done his piano practice. Not that his father is any help: he just cowers behind the newspaper; uttering "Language Timothy" regularly enough to keep himself out of trouble. But, no matter how many times Timothy is knocked down by life, love, and his career, he gets to his feet and tries again. And, one day, he might just get the better of his mother's underhand measures, blackmail and threats of a week-old jam roly-poly for tea. This fifth series finds Timothy rewarded for keeping quiet after witnessing an extra-marital affair; mouthing sweet words to a leading lady at the local theatre production and receiving some cryptic advice along with his great-uncle's ashes. And, as Timothy falls for narrowboatowner, Fenella - could his greatest wish be about to come true?
