Mrs Slocombe returns from an illness to discover that Grace Bros have initiated an early retirement policy and she is first in line. Her replacement leaves a lot to be desired in terms of tact and diplomacy. So much so that the rest of the staff are revolting. Mrs Slocombe has decided that she will never leave Grace Bros and makes every conceivable effort to stay there. Any job that's going, she takes. When the senior staff realise that they too could be included in the retirement scheme, desperate measures have to be taken.
