Richard Woodville is an ex-Etonian, suave, sophisticated and a smooth-talker who doesn't have to try too hard with the ladies. Harold King, on the other hand, is a working-class East Londoner, rough around the edges and who lacks the social skills of his flatmate. Together they work on a terrible radio serial and co-exist in less than peace and harmony.
