Mattocks, Fost and Ackroyd are Britain's first three astronauts. They must live in small, cramped space station orbiting the earth. Naturally, these conditions make coexistence difficult for them, but funny to us.

Des Kinvig, owner of a backstreet electrical repair shop and part-time UFO nut, discovers that one of his customers, the beautiful but fiery Miss Griffin, is really an emissary from the Planet Mercury who has come to Earth to help prevent an invasion by the evil alien Xux... or is it all part of Des's fevered imagination?

At the end credits of all seven episodes, the message 'Vicky Loves Jerry' appears amongst the cryptic hieroglyphic text that morphs into the names of the cast and crew. This can only be viewed by slowing down the DVD frame by frame, as the morphing is quick. To whom this message is referring to, is uncertain. See more »
It's sad that so few people remember this program. Maybe because there were only seven episodes -it was canceled and as I remember the final episodes were moved to a very late slot. So many comedies rely on the same formula that the odd ones out stick in the mind even decades after they were shown. The depiction of the electrical repair shop was very realistic and the scenery on the alien planet was OK despite the obviously low budget. I remember the program with affection perhaps at some stage it would have had to be revealed whether Kinvig was actually being abducted or it was in his mind and that would have effectively been the end of the joke.
