Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Few traditional British TV histories have been willing to describe the basic plot line of the BBC comedy-drama series Middlemen, presumably on the theory that no one will believe it. The fact remains, however, that the series' six 50-minute episodes chronicled the misadventures of a prosthetic toenail salesman, played by Frank Windsor. The program was written by the prolific Alan Plater, who never entered into any project lightly, no matter how silly the basic setup. Middlemen originally aired in 1977.
