Join the madcap Mrs Armitage and her dog Breakspear on their third outlandish adventure.

When Uncle Cosmo buys himself a motorbike and gives Mrs. Armitage his boring old car, it soon becomes obvious that her driving skills leave a lot to be desired. Mrs. Armitage and Breakspear cause havoc bumping into bollards, bedsteads, trucks, a crane and bedoinging over some extremely uneven roads. As the bumper, the doors, the mudguard and even the roof disappear along the way, the car is transformed into a mean machine, and Mrs. Armitage becomes Queen of the Road.
