'Dear Ladies' is the B.B.C. comedy series starring 'Hinge & Bracket', two upper class, elderly, but sprightly spinsters from Stackton Tressel. The ladies are soprano Dame Hilda Bracket, (the one with the lop sided mouth), who drives round the village in her lovely vintage car and pianist Dr.Evadne Hinge, (with the half moon glasses on a chain), who relies on her faithful old tricycle and trailer. George Logan & Patrick Fyffe not only played Hinge & Bracket well, but with great truth and sincerity, so much so, it is no wonder many thought they were real elderly ladies, rather than the best, most convincing female impersonation act since Arthur Lucan (Old Mother Riley). In this third and final series, Evadne and Hilda play pick up sticks, wearing the same patterned dresses, as Evadne says ''well i suppose we had better change our frocks, otherwise they won't know which of us is which will they'', Dame Hilda and Dr.Evadne go camping overnight, while Evadne is roughing it in a tent in the middle of a field, Hilda (unknown to Evadne) is in the lap of luxury in a manor house hotel, Dame Hilda tries to post her home made plum pie in the post box, Dr.Evadne relies on her old tricycle and trailer to take posters round to all the notice boards in the village, the posters advertising a campaign to 'keep Stackton tidy', Hilda does her bit by going round the village litter picking, (most of the litter is caused by Evadne, who is unaware most of the posters are falling one by one, out the back of her tricycle trailer). Dame Hilda dressed in her W.I. uniform, takes meals on wheels round Stackton, with disasterous results, serving up the meals on a runaway trolly, ''Boeuf Bourguignon, Pommes dauphinoises, Chou-fleur au gratin, Celeri a L'ail, Mushy peas!Read more ›

This third installment in the Dear Ladies collection of DVDs is a very welcome addition indeed. I have only vague memories of the TV series but a chance to see them now has been wonderful.

Hinge & Brackett provide an evening of gentle and indeed gentile comedy which is never vulgar, contains no swear words yet is somehow funny - something a lot of modern comedy shows don't quite manage.

I think what I enjoy most is the pacing of the show. It harks back to a time when their were credits before and after a show - giving you time to get in from the kitchen or down from your room! The exterior shooting provides a snap shot of an England which probably doesn't exist any more and I get simple pleasure from seeing this.

If you are a fan of Hinge & Brackett you will probably have this DVD already, if not then give it a spin... you might find yourself hooked on this pair of Dear Ladies!

Dear Ladies fans are in for a super time viewing this splendid series.
Set three has in my opinion the best episode: 'Where There's A Will' with superb comic actress Sheila Keith who comes to stay for a short break as 'Auntie Morag'. Generally being a pain in the proverbial, Morag chain-smokes her way through the abode of Hilda and Evadne, forever topping up her glass with scotch!("Evadne dear, would you pour me a wee drink") The script is excellent as the trio trade insults and general put downs, don't miss, whatever you do! Excruciatingly funny!!

Now I have the set - comedy at a gentle pace - wit and timing something of an art, but not for these two, it was their craft! It is a shame that the radio shows haven't been issued on CD. I cannot get enough of the Doctor and the Dame.
Love it, love it, love it!!!!

Dear Ladies series three finally arrives on dvd to complete the collection of adventures of the Dear Ladies of Stackton Tressel. Gyles Brandreth did the scripts for this series and its much funnier than series two. Once again Hinge and Bracket are faultless, never once do you think they are men.I showed series two to H and B virgins on a holiday in Malta last year and they would not believe they were men. Wonderful series shame there wasnt more. Hinge now runs a hotel in France called "Bel Ombrage" and they have regular fan weekends. I cant think of a better way to spend an evening.

As owner of [...] since 11th May 2004 when it went online officially endorsed by George Logan, i have have campaigned tirelessly for the release of Dear Ladies TV shows onto DVD.

Finally the BBC took notice and got in touch with me in March 2007 and i was pleased to help them as best i could.

These three series are just the best ever. Not the same without Maud though and missing the characters from the Radio shows, but nevertheless, the best 3 series of camp comedy and wit you could ever find.

Rest in Peace Patrick.

You might recognise the Dear Ladies - super-confident, forthright, never listen to advice - your old headmistress, perhaps? The opera singer whose friends should tell her to retire? This series hilariously sends them up. Dr Evadne Hinge and Dame Hilda Bracket are two musical ladies, late of the Rosa Charles touring opera company, who share a rambling mansion called Utopia Limited and dominate the small town where they live, with much gossip, backbiting and upstaging, and some very slapstick visual humour. This is a drag act with a difference. Basically in the spirit of the pantomime dame,the show contains some double-entendres, although the innocent are unlikely to understand them, and the show is entirely suitable for children. Fine supporting cast, including the bumbling vicar, the librarian who insists on silence in and out of the library, the slightly louche friends from the Dear Ladies' operatic past. Enjoy!
