Selwyn tries to impress his boss by telling him he reads the Times newspaper. When that doesn't work, he tell him he was a sergeant in the army and it was all a secret operation. He is a lout, braggart, practical joker, self important, unmarried and a pain to everyone around him, but he is the best hole digger in Yorkshire. People start running when they see him coming. Hence the series title.
