Timothy Lumsden is a young-at-heart 41 years old - a single man with a good job, an absorbing outside interest in the local amateur dramatic society and an eye for a pretty girl. Blessed with these obvious advantages, life should be fun - and would be if it wasn't for one thing... his tyrannical mother!
The problem is a delicate one as Tim still lives at home with is parents. His father, who has long since retreated into a world of his own, is not a threat to Timothy, but his mother - the domineering, interfering kind - has to be viewed more seriously. The trouble is that she simply refuses to recognise the fact that her son is no longer a little boy, but rather a grown man - despite his diminutive stature - with perfectly normal, if persistently thwarted, drives and instincts. And not wishing to offend his mother, Timothy usually suffers her seemingly well-meaning intentions. IT is obvious that she rules not only the house but also Timothy, through a campaign of sustained, yet subtle (and often hilarious), psychological terror tactics.
Ronnie Corbett (The Two Ronnies) plays Timothy Lumsden, a part specially written for him, and has turned him into one of the best-loved comic figures on television. Barbara Lott plays his domineering mother to perfection and his long-suffering father is portrayed by William Moore.
