In Surbiton, Surrey, film stars Michael Caine, Jack Nicholson, Al Pacino and others share a street with the likes of musicians Mick Jagger, David Bowie, and soccer pundit Jimmy Hill.

Although the residents are all in somewhat reduced circumstances they behave just like they're still in the bigtime. For example, Rolling Stones Mick Jagger and Keith Richards run the nearby corner shop but continue to act with their usual arrogance. The only common person is old Mrs Huggett, the local cleaner who is the butt of their verbal - and even physical - abuse.

In the second series Dirk Bogarde moves out, selling his house to Pam and Gary Slurrey, an irritating middle class couple. The third series sees Marlon Brando joining the street and heaping even more abuse on poor Mrs Huggett.
