Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The principal characters in this British sitcom were Fiddler (Robin Nedwell), Bishop (Garfield Morgan), and Checkie (Larry Martyn), a trio of unambitious but hopeful young blokes. Sharing a room over Ma's Café -- owned, naturally, by a lady named Ma (Toni Palmer) -- the heroes eked out a living by betting on horses. When their nags ran last, Fiddler, Bishop, and Checkie weren't above a bit of larceny or chicanery to keep food on the table. Lasting seven episodes, West End Tales aired from February 16 to April 6, 1981.
