The titular electrical repairman (Tony Haygarth) has a simple life and a fertile imagination. Running his own business from a rundown street corner in Bingleton, he's more than happy with his scatty wife, Netta (Patsy Rowlands), and their beloved dog, Cuddly. However, a chance encounter with the divine, Miss Griffin (Prunella Gee), opens up Des Kinvig's life to a world far beyond that of his daydreaming imagination. Soon he's whisked away from his mundane life for regular trips to the planet Mercury, where Des must assist in preventing the dreaded Xux tribe from invading Earth. All the while, his envious friend, Jim (Colin Jeavons), is on hand to keep him down to Earth, if indeed he is leaving in the first place?!?
