In the next episode, when the local seafarers’ pub starts only serving coffee, there’s no denying it’s rum....The coffee, that is. So who better than Milton to sort it out?

After that, in Episode Five, Milton is asked for help because there are ugly rumours about the local farm going too far with its GM crops. At least, that’s what the vegetables are saying. And in the final episode, Milton is asked to help out with the local book festival because the townsfolk are too distracted by their smartphones to - sorry, what was I saying? Sorry, just got a text...
