This is the story of the Scottish comedian and actor Chic Murray, who for many years had a double act with his wife, Maidie Dickson. They were known as the Tall Droll with the Small Doll because of their disaparity in height (6ft 3 and 4 ft 11), and were stalwarts of the theatre and later television from the 1950s through to the 1980s. But as with many comedians, there was a hidden sad side to Chic's life. We see Chic's comic performances - some truly hilarious routines - along with his musical talent, as well as the personal issues he and Maidie had to face. It's a great show, mixing laughter and sadness.
