Set in Brighton's Hove, Dr Arthur Wicksteed's life is getting complicated. He wants to have an affair with the young woman who has just appeared at his surgery. Meanwhile his wife is keen to rekindle her relationship with an old flame who happens to be in town for the British Medical Association conference.

Arthur's hypochondriac son Dennis has also met an alluring young woman and she wants to get married right away to make her an "honest woman" while Connie, Arthur's flat-chested sister has decided to order some breast enhancements which come complete with a man to install them!

To add to the complexity Arthur counsels the local clergyman who is frustrated with his 10-year engagement to Connie and one of Arthur's patients is on the phone determined to commit suicide.The Wicksteed's housekeeper, Mrs Swabb keeps the audience in the loop as strangers and locals come in and out of the surgery and Dr Wicksteed's life starts to slowly fall apart.
