Boycie, his wife, Marlene, and their son have to flee London to escape from the Driscoll Brothers. Boycie buys a farm, staffed by four useless employees.
Green Green Tropes:
- Britain Is Only London: Averted; this is set in Shropshire.
- Character Development: Mild example, but given Boycie was largely designed as Shadow Archetype and Smug Snake rival for Del Boy in Only Fools And Horses, his turn in center spotlight required more focus on his own pathos and slicker qualities.
- Embarrassing First Name: Boycie's is Aubrey.
- The Ghost: Myrtle, Bryan's ex-wife, and Elgin's wife.
- London Gangster: The Driscoll brothers.
- My Hovercraft Is Full of Eels: Tyler tries to impress his Welsh girlfiend by offering her an apology in Welsh. Unfortunately he got the statement from Llewellyn and ends up telling her she's got a fat bottom.
- Nightmare Sequence: Happens in "Bothered and Bewildered", when Boycie has a nightmare after thinking that Mrs. Cakeworthy cursed him.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: It's implied several times in the series that the farmhands (or at least Elgin) aren't really anywhere near as stupid as they like Boycie to think they are.
- Public Exposure: "Calendar Boys".
- Shoot Out the Lock: Played for Laughs when the Driscolls use AK-47s to destroy an entire door—except for the lock.
- Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Farmer Llewellyn, Boycie's next door neighbour, who has an irrational hatred for the English because of what the Saxons did in the 1600s. He often antagonises Boycie, or tries to take advantage of him.
