Eric Chappell’s Fiddlers Three was something of an uncredited remake of his 1970’s sitcom The Squirrels using quite a few of the same scenarios from that series.
Here Ralph West works in the Accounts Department of a large organisation and is happily married to Ros (Paula Wilcox).
Along with the rest of the staff, Ralph seems to spend more time dabbling in office politics and angling for promotion than he does working.
The Head of Accounts is J.J. Morley (Charles Kay) and other members of staff are Harvey (Peter Blake), Norma (Cindy Day) and Osborne (Tyler Butterworth)
