Margery And Gladys (ITV-1 2003, Penelope Keith, June Brown)



Margery And Gladys ITV-1, Penelope Keith, June Brown

Two of Britain’s best-loved actresses Penelope Keith and June Brown star in the title roles of ITV comedy drama Margery and Gladys.

When posh Margery (Penelope Keith) accidentally kills a young intruder in her home, she panics and goes on the run with her cleaning lady Gladys (June Brown) in tow. The unlikely couple take to the open road and fugitive life like ducks to water, proving more than a match for the pursuing police, played by Roger Lloyd Pack (Trigger in Only Fools And Horses) and Martin Freeman (The Office).

Margery’s only son Graham is played by Adam Godley. Gladys’s ne’er-do-well husband Troy is played by Peter Vaughan, while Goodness Gracious Me’s Kulvinder Ghir appears as post office owner Mr Singh.
