Saxondale Full Episode Guide

  • Magz has made some spiritually inclined new friends at a vegetarian cafĂ©, leading her to embark on a journey of self-discovery.

  • Tommy goes to court over an accusation of train fare evasion. Magz is concerned that his stubbornness will land Tommy in jail.

  • Tommy defends a group of squatters against small-minded, prejudiced suburbanites who want to evict them.

  • Tommy and Raymond spot a man, Martin, who's about to kill himself. They stop him in time, and Tommy resolves to change Martin's outlook on life.

  • Hearing that old roadie friend Malcolm Jessop is living in the area, Tommy tracks him down -- only to find that his rocker pal is now a businessman.

  • Tommy makes a fool of himself at a dinner party, much to the dismay of his girlfriend, Magz. Tommy and Raymond respond to a mouse problem and the client, Janet, takes a shine to Tommy. Tommy is enchanted by her knowledge of cars and her fulsome figure.

  • Tommy's Renault Kangoo gets clamped and, in an escalating series of events, he ends up taking on the mighty forces of corporate greed - in the form of Bernard Langley, boss of the new pest control business.

  • Tommy and Raymond attempt the humane removal of a squirrel from a woman's loft. Tommy's physical ineptitude on the job concerns him, so he goes to the local gym. Reluctant to start at beginner level, he twists a muscle in his neck and has to resort to amateur physiotherapy from girlfriend Magz.

  • Tommy's daughter Stevie pays a visit with new boyfriend Matt. Despite his anger-management classes, Tommy finds that Matt raises his volatile mood to yellow alert.

  • Deggsy, an old roadie mate of Tommy's, comes to stay for a few days. While Tommy has long embraced the calm, suburban life, Deggsy still has a taste for whisky and an eye for the ladies - although these days the awkward question of the ladies' hourly rate has to be addressed.

  • Magz's shop, Smash The System, is censored for displaying obscene material. Tommy fights for the right to uphold civil liberties, and to sell a poster of Prince Charles lighting his farts.

  • Ex-roadie-turned-pest-controller Tommy Saxondale is a laid-back guy, but he tends to explode with fury when he's pushed too far. "I love my daughter. I love my Mustang. I love my girlfriend. I love the way Eno can paint a picture with music. I fucking hate my ex-wife," ex-roadie-turned-pest-controller Tommy Saxondale tells his irritating group therapist at his anger management class.
