Two middle-age crazy English widows become best friends via letters, over many misadventure-filled years. Having met under a table at a wedding, when both were drunk with merriment, misunderstanding comes naturally to them. The ladies and their kin act out the events in the letters: in their homes, prison or wherever else they land, revealing the hilarious, venomous, or empathetic truth, between their ever-increasing lines. Based on a 13 year long BBC 4 radio series.
The smash spin-off from a 'Happy Days' episode about a wacky alien from the planet Ork and the sweet-natured woman who teaches him how to adapt on planet Earth. When the show launched in September 1978, it became an instant hit with its mix of frenetic comedy, sci-fi slapstick and a star-in-waiting (master of improv Robin Williams) in the lead.
