Storyline

Two middle-age crazy English housewives keep up with each other via letters over many misadventure-filled years. The ladies and their kin act out the events in the letters: in their homes, prison or wherever else they land, which reveal the hilarious, venomous, or empathetic truth, between their ever-increasing lines. Based on a 13 year long BBC 4 radio series, which originated from books by directors/actresses Carole Hayman ("Rides") and Lou Wakefield ("Firm Friends"), who also wrote the TV series. Co-star Anne Reid was also in the radio series. Written by David Stevens

Terrible
23 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

A really terrible show that doesn't engage, charm or entertain. It is so bewilderingly bad you wonder why they bothered.

It has characters you don't like (Irene especially) & don't want to spend time with. It's actually hard to tell that this is supposed to be a comedy. If a "comedy" show is going to have such unappealing characters they need to provide some comic relief, otherwise be a drama! Another reviewer has compared it to Absolutely Fabulous - that show I would argue marries comedy with characters that should be unlikeable, but aren't. Ladies of Letters fails at this.

Maureen Lipman is especially terrible.
