Nothing about Roger's life is right as far as he is concerned; his stature, hair colour and worst of all his surname plague him constantly. Roger's long suffering mother drags him off to church every Sunday in the hope it might secure his salvation, but to Roger, it is a pointless exercise. He does well at school and enters Cambridge university on a veterinary scholarship only to find the natural disasters have followed closely behind. One career leads to another, and still, the disasters follow in his wake. However, Roger, as always, emerges unscathed and blithely carries on. Follow Roger as he navigates the perils of simply being 'Roger' with hilarious results.
