Ladies of Letters Say No by Lou Wakefield & Carole Hayman.
The eighth series of barking mad misadventures for those two elderly ladies behaving badly.
Starring Prunella Scales & Patricia Routledge as Irene Spencer & Vera Small.
The caustic correspondence between Irene Spencer and Vera Small is always richly entertaining, and these latest letters are no exception. Catty and competitive as ever, the pensioner pen-pals find themselves in yet more trouble in this latest series.
Fundraising for her ancient local hospital, Irene organises a charity dinner, which Vera attends on the arm of her new beau, local millionaire Alan Trumper. Unfortunately, Vera has a choking incident and is admitted to that very hospital. Visiting her, Irene then has a mishap with a trolley, and ends up stuck in the same ward. Soon the Ladies are sniping at one another, vying for Alans attention, and complaining about the struggling hospitals standard of cleanliness superbugs are taking over and rats running rampant on the wards.
First broadcast in August 2007 as the Woman's Hour Serial.
