Synopsis: 

 

Peter Graham, a television series hero, seeks refuge rom all the females who continually chase after him and in particular, from 'Pixie Potter'.

 

He stays at the country rectory with his mild clerical Uncle Humphrey who has his own problems, as his formidable sister has just dismissed his housekeeper. So he advertises for a wife, but absentmindedly omits the important word "marriage".

 

These two occurrences resoundingly shatter the peace of the village and answers to the ad pour in.The arrival of the dignified Bishop of Lax adds to the confusion and Peter finds the vicarage no refuge from Pixie Potter and even more hectic than the outside world!
