The story Edit

In Off the Rails, scoutmaster Richard Bromley hires a new housekeeper, Alex, who transforms his life for a while until he receives a visit from DS Worth Roaden. Meanwhile, Tony and Dudley are in danger of losing their jobs at HG Transport after their boss discovers the mix-up with the vacuum cleaners. They bribe their colleague Bob to help them out, but they hadn't reckoned with Hillary and the rest of the bizarre Enham family...
