one of the funniest Britcoms you'll ever encounter

Commissioned by London Weekend Television (LWT) in 1975, TWO'S COMPANY starred the divine Elaine Stritch as Dorothy McNab, an American mystery novelist living and working in London, who takes on the stuffy, oh-so-teddibly British Robert (Donald Sinden) as her butler. Sparks fly when Dorothy, who is under the false belief that everyone is meant to have equal footing in this life, is "instructed" by Robert in the correct way (ie: HIS way) of running a household. Madly bashing away at the typewriter, Dorothy needs an organised and relaxed home life...but she never counted on tightly-wound Robert. Just WHO is the help and who is the boss?!

Wickedly scripted by Bill MacIllwraith, TWO'S COMPANY offered viewers of British comedy something a little more sophisticated and biting than the usual fare, with the humour extending from the dry wordplay between Dorothy and Robert. The show came during one of Elaine Stritch's most prolific periods of her professional career. She had chiefly relocated to London for the successful West End transfer of "Company", but decided to stay in the country on a full-time basis when she married English actor John Bay. Setting up housekeeping at the Savoy Hotel no less, Stritch was the darling of the London talk show circuit, starred as Aunt Polly in a miniseries of "Pollyanna" for the BBC, and of course remained as the acerbic Dorothy for three more series of TWO'S COMPANY.

Series 1 of TWO'S COMPANY includes the following episodes:

"The Bait" - Dorothy McNab's in the market for a butler...but with Robert, has she won the lottery or landed the booby-prize?

"The Housekeeping" - Robert needs more cash to run the various household expenses (not to mention a healthy interest in the racetrack), but Dorothy decides to hold firm to her original plan...

"Dorothy's Electrician" - Some fancy new wall lights are all ready to be installed. It's the beginning of another ordeal for Dorothy and Robert...

"The Patient" - The joys of the public health system. Robert falls down the stairs and an anxious Dorothy accompanies him to the hospital emergency room... Guest starring Penelope Keith!

"The Romance" - Dorothy's new would-be boyfriend is on the prowl, and it's Robert's day off...

"Robert's Mother" - Like mother like son? Dorothy is intrigued when Robert's mother drops by for a visit...
