The premise of The Goodies File is that it is a compilation of evidence gathered by Mrs. Edna Tole, one-time employee of the Goodies, who was seeking to expose them and, in the process, “make a million pounds”.   Among the humorous contents are a series of letters between Mrs. Tole and the book's publisher.  The real-life publishing company's name was used; this was changed from Weidenfeld & Nicholson in the hardcover edition to Sphere Books in the paperback edition.

In their second book, the Goodies are supposedly suing the  publisher of The Goodies File.  The book opens with a letter from the Goodies’ lawyer saying, “…On my clients behalf, I must make it plain to you that they were distressed and embarrassed by the publication of scurrilous material, all of which is forged, and in any case they meant to burn it all before anyone got their hands on it.”  However, in order to win their case the Goodies need to prove that each of the various charges against them are indeed false - that “evidence” is the substance of another very funny book.
