After being crushed to death at the end of the last series, Gordon Brittas spent a short time in Heaven which only served to annoy St Peter so much that he sent him back to earth to finish his mission. Gordon has spent the last six months being rebuilt in a Swiss clinic and returns to Whitbury Leisure Centre fighting fit after training runs in the Alps. Unfortunately, in true Brittas fashion, he returns a day early - missing the elaborate red carpet welcome the staff have prepared for him. Helen Brittas has spent the intervening time in a psychiatric institution after the shock of a) discovering that Gordon was in fact alive and b) having already spent the £88,000 insurance money. There is a new adversary for Brittas in the shape of Penny Bidmead, who has taken over the running of the Sauna Solarium complex with a view to privatisation. Carole is back behind the reception desk, together with her children, after her brief glimpse of security as Nanny with the Austrian Herr Von Trapp. Unfortunately, the possibility of her hearing wedding bells was dashed when he ditched her and married one of the nuns. Colin found that his boil mysteriously disappeared after Brittas died, but in a fond act of remembrance he kept it preserved in a jar at home. Colin also has on his conscience the bomb he inadvertently placed in Mr Brittas' croquet set when he was due to move to Brussels. Whatever did happen to that bomb?
