When militant femenist-marxist Amanda (Dawn French) lands a flat, she realises that she cannot afford the rent without another tenant - enter loud American actress-wannabe Shelly (Ruby Wax) - who promptly comandeers the master bedroom. Also sharing the abode are Amanda's childhood friend - the dopey and infantile Jennifer (Jennifer Saunders) and the flat's previous tenant, Candice (Tracey Ullman) - a brazen tart, thief and hypochondriac. Candice is not present in the second series.
Downstairs, living in her own insane world, is Lady Carlton (Joan Greenwood) - an eccentric romance novelist and the girls' land-lady.
