: This beautiful expression was used in an old 'Brit Com' apparently meaning, in a slightly amused and self depricating way, set in one's ways or stuck in one's pattern of behavior.

: So the question came up; is this a British expression or did the writers put it in the script?

Never heard it used as a standard expression over here in the UK - I expect that the writers came up all by themselves with a humorous simile.
