Part of the
British Comedy Collection
Two people meet by chance, and out of convenience pretend to be a professional couple so they can rent a flat they take a liking to. They share the building with their alcoholic landlady and her daughter, and an eccentric artist who pays his rent in the form of sexual favours. Added to this lovely cocktail are two friends, one more than slightly stupid, the other slightly more than obsessed with all things military. Oh, and then there's Colin, the most normal one of the lot. Woof!
