Brian And Charles is based on David Earl's acclaimed comedic alter-ego Brian Gittins, and his unlikely friendship with Charles, a robot.
Brian lives alone in a remote village in the countryside. Something of an outcast, he spends his spare time inventing things out of found objects in his garage.
After a particularly harsh winter, Brian goes into a deep depression; without friends or family to rely on he decides to build a robot for company. 'Charles' is not only Brian's most successful invention, but he appears to have a personality all of his own and quickly becomes Brian's best friend, curing his loneliness and opening Brian's eyes to a new way of living. However, Charles creates more problems than Brian bargained for, particularly as he keeps eating Brian's cabbages, and the timid inventor has to face-up to several issues in his life; his eccentric ways, a local bully, and the woman he's always been fond of but never had the nerve to talk to.
