Almost every institution and ideal is satirized by authors Lou Wakefield and Carole Hayman. It seemed, as the series continued, that the gay relationship of Vera's son an his partner might be the only thing that surives amongst so much cheating, mayhem, violence and crime, but in the Sixth Series even this constant factor comes under threat.
The humour is carefully paced and the characterization well-crafted. Vera is the more gullible and Irene the more manipulative of the ladies. Prunella Scales and Patricia Routledge deliver all this in a wonderfully entertaining double act in the audio book form, and Anne Reid and Maureen Lipman feature in a tv adaptation.
