Prunella Scales and Patricia Routledge make a clean sweep in a further series of the BBC Radio 4 comedy hit. The ladies are back, and this time they're full of Springtime recipes and tips for a long and healthy life. Once again, however, disaster is never very far away... Reunited at the bedside of a mutual old flame, Irene and Vera feel a sudden urge to focus on all things dietary and medical. From rest cures to rest homes, and from running repairs to running away, the intrepid ladies find themselves launching into battle with doctors, dieticians, their own families and - of course - with each other. This sixth entry in the phenomenally popular series, first broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour, is guaranteed to administer a welcome dose of fun and mayhem. There are few double acts that delight audiences quite as much as...Ladies Of Letters Daily Express
