The complete first series of the BBC comedy starring Geraldine McEwan. Mulberry (Karl Howman) is the cheerful cockney son of Death and Springtime. He starts his 'career' as the Grim Reaper's apprentice and is sent to collect the dour, snooty, acid-tongued, grumpy and reclusive Miss Farnaby (McEwan). He instead sweet-talks his way into joining the staff of Bert (Tony Selby) and Alice (Lill Roughley) in her creaky old manor house and soon becomes her personal servant. Suddenly, the dull old house is not dull anymore as Mulberry endeavours to help Miss Farnaby enjoy her life during the three month extension grudgingly granted by his dad.
