Sergeant Miller has a clash with three Australians when they graze his patrol car on their way to Grimedale Farm to do some sheep shearing for George Grigson. And Miller is not the only one having trouble with them. They are eating Gina out of house and home - or at least Aidensfield Arms - and Grigson's golden watch is missing when they have left the farm. Others also find their way to Aidensfield. Reverend Jamie Finn returns to collect his motor bike - and not the least to see Rosie again. Furthermore he has a suggestion that completely knocks her off her feet. Aunt Peggy is short of money and buys a brand new washing machine open up a laundry. But modern contraptions like that are complicated machines - especially for David. Miller has a word with PC Mason about his replacement, but Mason is not sure he wants to leave anymore. Rosie Cartright decides to go to Australia with the visitors when they return.
