Freshly-retired William Wheeler reluctantly signs-up for his pension.

Molly Sugden and Deryck Guyler play crusty old married couple, Olive and William Wheeler, who refer to each other in the arcane ‘Mother’ and ‘Father’ terminology.

After 40 years of work in the same office, he's recently retired and is trying to adapt to his new life of leisure. She, on the other hand, is trying to adapt to having her husband under her feet all day, for the first time in their marriage.
