The Goodies

Short of work, the Goodies decide to accept the next job that turns up – and so they take on the role of gardener (Graeme), cook (Bill) and nanny (a dragged-up Tim) for a very peculiar couple and their niece, Cecily. After the aunt and uncle have left on urgent business, the Goodies work their way through a lengthy ‘To Do’ list: Graeme finds himself in a garden from hell; Bill struggles to make a pie; and Tim meets dear, sweet little Cecily. After discovering the skeleton of one of his predecessors in the cellar, nanny Tim learns that Cecily’s family are trying to frighten her to death so that they can get their hands on the £50,000 left to her in her grandfather’s will. The Goodies vow to look after Cecily come what may – but after a night in a house filled with horrors, they begin to suspect that the girl may not be as innocent as they thought…
