When the gifts of management and diplomacy were handed out, Gordon Brittas was definitely last in line. The consenus is that he's misguided, maladjusted and very probably mad - something that the staff and customers of the new Whitbury New Town Leisure Centre are about to experience first hand!
Gordon Brittas has been appointed as the new manager of the Whitbury New Town Leisure Centre. He arrives to find an efficiently run building, smiling staff and the builders just adding the finishing touches - until they receive his pep talk.
Gordon is anxious that the official opening ceremony will be a success. Unfortunately, not everything is fully functional and with Gordon in charge things go from bad to worse.
Brittas finally finds out about Carole keeping her baby in the desk drawers and orders her to remove both it and herself. Unfortunately, the baby goes missing and the distraught mother goes berserk with an axe.
The leisure centre swimming pool has been chosen by two members of Whitbury Diving Club as the location for their underwater wedding. Not everything goes to plan and Brittas cannot understand his bad luck.
Following a spate of petty theft, Brittas is convinced that one of the staff is responsible. When his initial attempts to find the culprit fail, he decides to hide Colin in a locker in the ladies changing room as a spy.
Visitor attendance at the leisure centre is down to forty-three, so Brittas designs some special offers to attract customers. But he may have underestimated a man in black who is stalking the centre with the intention of killing him.
