Even his initial meeting with his beloved Alison happened by pure chance - when he went to a local pub to meet another girl (also called Alison) for a 'blind date'. As this was the same pub that Alison had arranged to meet her cousin, Tom Chesney, for the first time since they were both children, it was a coincidence waiting to happen! Tom Chance's frequent brushes with coincidences also lead to his being continually arrested by police for crimes he did not commit, with the result that the Police Sergeant finally issues instructions, to his force, *not* to arrest Tom - even when faced with the most compromising of circumstances involving Tom.
