His co-workers are an odd assortment including a computer geek named Sven and his dog, Sandwiches. Also, helping him is a beautiful consultant, Gwenyth Morgan. Amazingly, Gwenyth appears to be attracted to him, but Arthur has a girlfriend, Faye.

As Arthur and Gwenyth explore their attraction for each other, their relationship begins to look like the mythical Arthur and Guinevere. A Lancelot character joins the team to help Arthur and tempt Gwenyth. Even more difficult than his love life, Arthur has to figure out a town plan to make Coventry interesting enough to be considered a city of culture.
