An eagerly anticipated 10th series of this much loved and critically acclaimed Radio 4 comedy masterpiece. Grandmothers Irene Spencer and Vera Small, immortalised by Prunella Scales and Patricia Routledge, return as the indomitable Ladies of Letters, brightening the airwaves with their wit and wisdom.
Following the great success of Ladies of Letters, More Ladies of Letters, and Ladies of Letters.com, this audio release, from the fourth radio series, continues to follow the correspondence between pensioners Vera Small and Irene Spencer.
Taken from the third successful BBC Radio 4 series starring Patricia Routledge and Prunella Scales, these episodes see a trembling in cyberspace as Vera and Irene discover the joys of e-mail. There are the usual domestic mishaps to fret about: Irene's daughter Lesley is refusing to marry the worthy but boring Brian; Vera's exhausted daughter Karen has abandoned her third baby at the hospital and eloped with a male nurse; and more.
When Irene Spencer meets Vera Small at her daughter Lesley's wedding reception they embark upon a correspondence that is quite unlike any other in the history of letter-writing. Both Irene and Vera are happily widowed and endowed with errant offspring. They live in a world of church fetes and amateur dramatics, but love nothing more than dipping their pens in the vitriol pot - while remaining the firmest of pen-pals.
