The return of the much-loved comedy set in Arkwright's corner shop. The series begins with a Christmas special where Granville (David Jason) still has his sights set on romance with Mavis (Maggie Ollerenshaw) but Madge (Brigit Forsyth) has ideas about moving away. Mr. Newbold (Geoffrey Whitehead) is also thinking of doing a runner, leaving Granville at the mercy of Mrs. Featherstone (Stephanie Cole) who continues to pursue the canny grocer while keeping Mr. Newbold as first reserve! In other episodes Granville has a new idea for growing the business - he's offering fitness classes, but can he really turn Gastric (Tim Healy) into a greyhound to impress Madge? Eric (Johnny Vegas) and Cyril's (Kulvinder Ghir) quest for fitness finds them in some very uncomfortable lycra on a bicycle made for two. We hear about Mrs. Featherstone's "exotic past" and Mr. Newbold has an image make-over. Mrs. Hussein (Nina Wadia) continues to flirt with Leroy (James Baxter), who has fallen for a vegan librarian, Beth (Katie Bedford) but she's reluctant to date a "meat eater". Gastric discovers he has an artistic side and Kath (Sally Lindsay) gets a big surprise when Eric returns home from a night out. A trip to Scarborough presents Granville with an opportunity to combine business with pleasure when Mavis invites him for lunch in a seaside hotel; back at the shop Leroy is in sole charge for the day - he's keen and full of confidence, so what could possible go wrong? There are more hair-brained schemes and unlikely products than you could shake a boiled ham at, and of course the unpredictable snapping jaws of the till.
