As Irene and Vera fall in and out of friendship they accuse each other of everything from alcoholism to metal illness (in a loving, caring way, of course). Their hilarious put-downs and gossip give a wonderful insight into the trials of modern family life.

Prunella Scales and Patricia Routledge are soooo good! The plot of other characters are a little disappointing. I love the combination of the superb talents of Scales and Routledge but haven't been thrilled by the storyline. It was still a worthy listen.
Touch of the humour of Jane Austen with all the wit.
Mrs Fawlty and Hyancyinth.
Laugh till you wet yourself. A little tear at one point.
"A Great Series"
This series has been consistently funny. With two of the greatest British actresses in it, the quality of the production is fabulous. Highly recommended
