Storyline

Haughty, recently widowed Margery Heywood and her cleaner Gladys Gladwell go on the run after mistakenly believing that they have killed a teen-age burglar and, having held up a post office for Gladys's money and given petty crook Terry Mason a lift they are soon pursued by the police. Their uneasy alliance is not helped when Margery learns that her late husband Eric had had a twenty year affair with Gladys, the discovery of which had profoundly affected Margery's son Graham. A further shocking revelation takes the pair to Blackpool where another truth is revealed, leading to a genuine friendship and an end to their troubles. Written by don @ minifie-1

Who would of thought?
9 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

The pairing of Penelope Keith and June Brown seemed a bit strange to me, but as there seemed to be nothing else on that night, I watched this, and I'm glad I did.

P.K. and J.B. worked their 'unlikely ladies double act' off perfectly, with Penelope's slightly snobbish employer of June's cleaner character. Going around the country accidentally avoiding the police and leaving a trail of crimes when they were innocent of any crimes to start with.

A funny ITV comedy-drama (I normally hate ITV dramas - heartbeat etc..) that I would love to see again, or more unlikely partnerships perhaps?

8/10
