The History of Mr Polly

Timid draper Mills, tired of his dull life and nagging wife, torches his shop and takes to the open road, landing up at the Potwell Inn, where he battles with fearsome Currie before settling down with the pub's jolly plump landlady, Megs Jenkins. A pleasant, rosy-cheeked adaptation of HG Wells's rural fantasy novel.
