When a young, well-to-do couple, Angie and Dr Robert Price, decide to hire a cleaner, along comes Ida Willis (Mollie Sugden). This friendly, working class woman is hired and Angie gets on great with her. During their first cup of tea together they talk about each other's lives and families. They find out they have something in common, Ida had a hard life and had to give up her son for adoption, and Angie's husband was adopted. They swap baby photos, as you do, only to discover that they are one in the same person.
The situation comedy is now set, with Ida's hard life, and Robert's adventageous upbringing in opposition. Ida starts giving her son all the love that should couldn't when he was a boy, treating the doctor like a child, while he trys to emotionally detatch himself from her, like the doctor and upper class young gentleman he's been brought up to be. This comdey showed how the class divide was breaking down at the time, and was quite comical at times. Definetely good honest family entertainment.
