Porkpie COMPLETE S 1-2
Following the end of the highly successful Desmond’s, life in Peckham continues. In the first episode, after the reading of the will of his late friend Desmond Ambrose (Norman Beaton), Augustus "Porkpie" Grant, a former employee at the Ford Motor Company is now a lollipop man. He borrows a pound from Michael (Desmond’s son) and buys a lottery ticket. The ticket turns out to be a winner and Porkpie (as he is always called by friends) suddenly finds himself with a fortune of ten million pounds. However, before he announces that he has won he gives Michael a pound back, so he cannot have any claims to the money. He moves out of his flat into a home and also hires a chauffeur to drive him around in his new car, a Ford Escort (Porkpie explains that he bought one because "I always wanted one of these, I could never afford one, not even with the staff discount"). As time (and the series move on) Porkpie goes through various situations and learns whom he can and cannot trust now he is a millionaire.
