A blow on the head causes a car crash that leaves Godfrey paralysed, a tragic holiday in Hamburg forces him to turn to his estranged nephew for help, and the sale of his house leads to a two-month stretch in prison.

"She looks well otherwise. I mean, apart from being dead. I mean, she looks as if the holiday has done her good. I'll go and make a cup of tea, shall I?"

Part of the
British Comedy Collection
Godfrey Spry's life is changed forever when he's hit on the head by a wheelbarrow filled with bricks. Resulting problems with his attention span leave him unable to take in much more than the adverts on the television. The only trouble is that he believes all that he hears, and an advert for a car soon lands him back in hospital. A trip to Hamburg ensures that bad things really do come in threes... and a call to an estranged nephew means that Gordon Spry's life is changed forever when his uncle gets hit on the head by a wheelbarrow filled with bricks.
