Summary
For once, Paul Gooding (23) is in the right place at the right time. He has qualified as a doctor, he has a nice, crisp white coat that makes him look a bit thinner than he actually is, and he's got a hospital job in Shadley Oak, a small Midlands town inhabited by ten thousand people and one goddess. Marianne Cray.

Summary expansion
Some are born odd, some achieve oddness, and some are just in the wrong place at the wrong time The Devon family's a good example: there's thirty-nine-year-old Glenn, whose main interest in life is rubbish collection; his mother, Bel, who teaches tap steps to eight-year-olds but acts as if she's running the Kirov; and his sister, Netta, who spent her early life simply being considered mad by association. Which is why she's dreading six weeks back in their company, helping them move house. Also struggling to conform are Paul Gooding, a newly qualified doctor with a highly embarrassing past; his flatmate, Armand, who's obsessed with foot hygiene; and his colleague, Carrie, who (inadvertently) keeps killing people. Odd One Out. When enough people are out of step, they can form an army of their own
