The Topham family live a blissfully happy life together in the lovely market town of Dunmow in deepest Essex. Recently married young couple Basil and Julie Topham, played by David Tomlinson and Petula Clark, are waiting for their house to be finished by local builders. Until then, they are forced to live with Basil’s parents and eccentric grandfather. Basil and Julie have entered the ancient annual ‘Dummow Flitch Trials’, in which a married couple can win a side of bacon if, at the end of one year, they have ‘not wisht themselves unmarried again’. However, the Topham’s happy household, and then the entire village, is thrown into chaos when an attractive Hungarian housemaid arrives, played by Sonja Ziemann.
