The characters in Lynne Truss's new comedy drama live under the shadow of The Rock, an impressively large geological feature at a remote Golf Club in Wales, where it has been raining for twenty years.

There's the severely repressed Angharad, 'Mad' Auntie Susan, who is clearly a man, Riddle, the disgusting old greenkeeper, and poor long suffering Charles who has devoted his life to saving each and every one of the club's members from an untimely death, only to fail.

At this Club it's easy to make a fatal mistake, all you have to do is break one of the rules.

Inadvertently enter the wrong score on your partner's scorecard, or let your wife order her own drink at the bar and you'll probably be spikes up by tea-time.

And when Jaci Hughes the young cartographer from distant Cardiff turns up, all manner of skeletons come rattling out of the closet.

Margaret John, otherwise known as Doris in the BBC's comedy Gavin and Stacey, stars as Angharad, Brian Hibbard as Aunty Susan, and comedian Tom Allen as Charles.

Lynne Seymour plays Jaci, Lee Mengo is Uncle Gwyn and Howell Evans plays Riddle.

In the final episode of Lynne Truss's comedy drama, the secret of Uncle Gwyn's swingeing curse is finally revealed.

Well, sort of.

In a violent storm the giant Golf Ball Rock has come careering down the hill, across the course and into the bunker on the fourth, narrowly missing cartographer Jaci Hughes, a slightly flushed Angharad, and Mad Aunty Susan, who has now been revealed to be Tony Llewellyn, the famous Welsh golfer who disappeared years ago after winning a big tournament.

Not only that but Tony Llewellyn, it turns out, is actually Jaci Hughes's father.

And to catch you up with other events, Angharad has had a shameful tryst with disgusting greenkeeper Riddle in his abominable hut.

What could possibly happen next? Margaret John, otherwise known as Doris in the BBC's comedy Gavin and Stacey, stars as Angharad, Brian Hibbard as Aunty Susan, and comedian Tom Allen as Charles.

Cartographer Jaci arrives to map The Rock.

Can Charles stop the curse striking again?

In the second episode of Lynne Truss's new comedy drama, something miraculous happens when Jaci Hughes, a young cartographer, arrives to map The Rock, an massive large geological feature overhanging a remote Golf Club in Wales, where it has been raining for twenty years.

No one is glad to see Jaci - not severely repressed Angharad, nor 'Mad' Auntie Susan, who is clearly a man dressed up, nor Riddle, the disgusting old greenkeeper, and certainly not Charles who is desperate to prevent the curse claiming another victim.

After years of repression, Angharad's lust for the greenkeeper can no longer be contained.

Jaci Hughes's arrival has caused all sort of ructions at the Golf Club.

For one thing it's stopped raining after twenty years.

For another she's revealed her golfer's arms to Riddle, the digusting old greenkeeper, to whom those arms look strangely familiar.

Meanwhile, spurred on by sexual jealousy after years of repression matters come to a head for Angharad, so to speak, in Riddle's hut.

To make matters worse, Mad Aunty Susan, the lady owner of the Club who looks suspiciously like a rugby prop forward, has gone missing.
