Fiona and Susan Corday are sisters. But that's all they have in common. Flatmates as well as siblings, they wind each other up and defend each other in equal measure.

Fiona is a solicitor and Susan is her irritating younger sister who describes herself as a writer/life coach/eccentric.

Where Fiona is serious, neat and grounded, Susan is unpredictable, eccentric, messy and stubborn. Where Fiona has been diligently working away at her admin job and quietly in love with her boss, Susan has been slobbing around in a dressing gown and calling herself a writer.

And when Susan moves into Fiona's flat because Fiona needs the rent and Susan needs someone to pick up after her, Susan immediately starts causing trouble, with the help of their geeky, oddball neighbour. Blake is described by Susan as her "pet" and often finds himself involved in their lives whether they like it or not.

Sisters is very loosely based on Susan Calman's own relationship with her older sister.
