Brian & Charles is based on David Earl's acclaimed comedic alter-ego Brian Gittins, and his unlikely friendship with Charles, a robot.

After a particularly harsh winter, Brian goes into a deep depression; completely alone and with no one to talk to, he does what any sane person would do when faced with such a melancholic situation and builds a robot - Charles - for company. While things start off well, tensions begin to rise, particularly as Charles keeps eating Brian's cabbages.
