Prunella Scales and Patricia Routledge take on the world in another hilarious series of the BBC Radio 4 comedy hit.
The intrepid grandmothers are back and at loggerheads with their respective families. Vera decides to take a break in Ibiza, and invites Irene to join her.
But a simple holiday soon becomes a big adventure as the two quickly, and inevitably, fall out, get into separate scrapes in different countries, appeal to each other for help, and end up chasing round the world from Moscow to the Maldives. Short of cash, forced to take casual work, and having to sort out family crises back home, nothing dampens their spirits.
Grappling with unfamiliar accents and unusual foods, the indomitable ladies find themselves launching into battle with everyone from hotel owners to Transylvanian separatist rebels. In fact, they’re coping admirably with foreign travel, but how will the rest of the world cope with the ‘Ladies of Letters’?
