Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The British sitcom Sob Sisters was the tale of two siblings, Dorothy (Polly Adams) and Liz (Gwen Taylor). Accustomed to living in style and comfort, Dorothy was jostled back to reality when her wealthy husband died, leaving her penniless. Conversely, Liz had always existed on the edge of poverty, and was openly contemptuous of the privileged class. When Dorothy and Liz found themselves obliged to share the same flat, each sister had to learn to adjust to the other -- and of course, it wasn't easy. Seven half-hour episodes of Sob Sisters were aired by Central Television from May 26 to July 7, 1989.
