The genius in the mad shirts from Mock the Week stars in his own series costarring Tom Goodman-Hill, Josie Lawrence, Ben Willbond and Dan Tetsell. Mention Milton Jones to most people and the first thing they think is, ´Help!´ In this show he has decided to set himself up as a man who can help anyone anywhere - whether they need it or not. Because, in his own words, there´s ´no problem too problemy´. So when you´re close to the edge, then Milton can give you a push.... In the first of these six episodes, Milton becomes a responsible, sober-suited financial advisor, and fights off a Swedish invasion with the aid of his trusty hamster. In the second episode, when Milton finally decides to empty his bins, he accidentally makes both a delicious sparkling wine and a deadly enemy. In the next episode, when Milton discovers the local lido is under threat of closure, he unwisely decides to organize a sit-in. But his dreams for a state-of-the-art aquacentre are sunk when his trunks are declared a biohazard. In episode four, when Milton launches a job agency it turns out that getting people into work actually is rocket science. Which is why his best client accidentally goes ballistic. After that, when Milton opens up a car repair shop, he finds he´s on a collision course with a notorious local villain. Meanwhile, a mysterious tin of travel sweets comes to a sticky end. And in the final part, Milton offers his services as a bodyguard and discovers that a South American diva and a tent full of homemade jam don´t mix as well as he´d imagined.
