Shelley is a youngish PHD graduate who is on the dole in the late 70s/early 80s and his ideal is to remain so whilst at the same time staying just enough within the system to receive state benefits. Shelley is acerbic, sharp and intellectually superior to most of those he is coming into contact with in the dole office. The result is a dry sitcom of one man's struggle to continue being a layabout.
