Synopsis

Tommy Saxondale has been through the rock and roll mill and lived to tell the tale. He plays fast and loose, shoots from the hip, and tells no lies - he's a true maverick.

Tom never took the corporate dollar. He doesn't work for 'the man'; he's his own man. These and other moth-eaten clichés are how Tommy would describe himself.

But when Tommy removes his rose-tinted Aviator shades, he can't deny a few basic facts: he was a middle-ranking roadie for 20 years, but for the past 10 years he has been at the cutting edge of the pest control industry... in Hertfordshire.

After a hostile divorce, Tommy has found his soulmate in Magz, proprietress of an anarchic T-shirt shop called Smash the System.

Tommy regards himself as a maverick and free thinker and takes the opportunity to impart his wisdom to his naïve assistant Raymond.

But as well as Pharaohs Ants, mice and, occasionally, moths, Tommy also has to battle with snowboarding idiots, pigeon-loving activists... and people who talk about property prices.

In the course of the series Tommy gets his eyesight improved by a prostitute, has a heart murmur, executes a pigeon and experiments with women's make-up.
