a drag sitcom on the BBC!
22 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Dr Evadne Hinge (George Logan) and Dame Hilda Bracket (Patrick Fyffe) were a well regarded and extremely funny drag act whose act revolved around anecdotes from the past and the occasional song - Dame Hilda having been in grand opera during the war and Dr Evadne having been a great pianist.

'Dear Ladies' was the first attempt to open out their act beyond the confines of the stage and give a sense of their background away from the bright lights. Co-written with Gyles Brandreth, it is undemanding, funny, and likable - much like their stage act. Here we see them shopping, attending the village fête, bickering over their house, and so on.

There's nothing offensive or ground-breaking here, and if you're familiar with the ladies' stage act, you'll probably like this. Fyffe in particular made a very convincing woman, and both had voices in perfect range for the popular standards and operetta they sang. This series should raise a few smiles and laughs if you're so inclined.
