Every year thousands of tourists flock to the Lake District. But one place they never go to is Plum House - the former country house of minor 18th century poet George Pudding. Now a crumbling museum, it struggles to stay open under its eccentric curator, Peter Knight.
Eager young museum administrator Tom Collyer arrives determined to turn the place round, but finds the incompetent staff very resistant to the C-Word - change. A new comedy written by Ben Cottam and Paul McKenna.

not my cup of tea because it did not make me chuckle although classed as 'comedy' (a term overused in some of the bbc output-hut 33? yeah, right). s1 e1 did make me smile once when the WI descended on the gift shop shouting 'tea-towels!'. titter factor=1%. i noted (& winced) that simon cowell's character mused on a homo-erotic fantasy, which failed to be funny, just sleazy imo. BTW; hetro-erotic innuendo has died in these 'acceptable' times. cheeky chappy is deemed 'offensive'. this is entirely my opinion, perhaps you don't share it so, don't bother to castigate me.

Very clever and funny show.
Certainly not everyone would totally get all the humor in this program. It is subtle, naughty, sometimes obvious and sometime not. I think it is terrific. The cast is outstanding with actors who are so talented and so funny it's amazing that so many were gathered together for this show. I live in the USA and enjoy programs that originated here. But for humor, you can't beat Great Britain.
