Eric Sykes and Hattie Jacques played twins, living in a small village, at 24 Sepastopol Terrace. Most of the clasic episodes revolved around Eric's daydream disasters and Hattie's bewilderment. Other characters include Mr. Brown (Richard Wattis) and village policeman Corky (Deryck Guyler). The program originally ran on BBC in black and white from 1960 to 1965 and was revived in colour from 1972 to 1979. Most of the colour episodes were remakes of the clasic episodes from the 1960s.
