James Shelley is highly educated and has a PhD in geography. He is also unemployed and has no intention of working. He lives with his girlfriend Fran in a bedsit at the home of Mrs. Hawkins (known as Mrs. H) and the series follows his mis-adventures as he ducks, dodges and tries as hard as possible not to be caught up in Thatcher's Britain.
