Ronnie Corbett plays granddad Sandy Hopper in this sitcom which reunites him with the writers of his hit comedy Sorry – Ian Davidson and Peter Vincent. Sandy Hopper is growing old happily along with his dog Henry. His grown up children – both married to people Sandy doesn't approve of at all – would like him to move out of the family home so they can get their hands on their money earlier. But Sandy's not having this – he's not moving until the dog dies. And anyway, how can he move if he's got a lodger?
Ronnie Corbett returns for the final series of the sitcom that reunites him with the writers of his hit comedy Sorry - Ian Davidson and Peter Vincent. Granddad Sandy Hopper is happily growing old with his dog, Henry, and his lodger, Dolores. But his children think Dolores is a gold digger and are keen for Sandy to downsize - something he promises he'll do 'when the dog dies'. In the meantime, he's busy providing a guiding hand to his family and helping out when (frequent) emergencies occur.
In these six episodes, Sandy makes a new will; has to scatter Auntie's ashes and raids neighbour Ken's garden to find out if he has discovered the secret of eternal youth. In addition, Sandy's watch gets stolen much to the annoyance of son-in-law Blake, who has fitted it with a tracking device and he is haunted by the song 'Green Grow the Rushes Oh' when recent events seem to match its verses. Finally, he and his family catch the gambling bug, and Pompom goes missing.
