Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Elaine Stritch is back as the flamboyant, temperamental Dorothy McNab, an American author living in England, and so is Donald Sinden as Dorothy's delightfully snooty and outspoken British butler Robert, in the third season of the London Weekend Television sitcom Two's Company. Eight new episodes are served up this season, beginning with "The Invitation," wherein Dorothy and Robert frantically prepare for an audience with Queen Elizabeth, with only three hours before the big event. In "The Freezer," the viewer is at ringside for another culinary battle royal between Dorothy and Robert. "The Pet" finds Robert at his wit's end when Dorothy purchases a particularly annoying small dog. In "The Take-Over Bid," a scheming chauffeur threatens to take over Robert's position. "The Virus" proves anew that obstreperous people become even more obstreperous when illness flies through the window. "The Critic" pits Dorothy against a member of the reading public who isn't enamored of her literally output. And "The Picnic" is a comedy of errors segueing into a symphony of disaster. The season closes with "The Politicians" a savage skewering of the Parliament which will obviously prove more amusing to British fans than Americans.
