Outside Edge is a Sitcom programme.



Outside Edge

Filmed entirely on location in Surrey. This comedy follows the lives and loves of the members of an amateur cricket club set in a local cricket club on a Saturday morning.

Roger (Paul Eddington) is the team captain and must juggle his silly mid on's with his fine legs, while debating whether a plaster on the bowlers hand is legal. He is married to the cricket club tea maker Miriam (Prunella Scales). Maggie (Maureen Lipman) is married to Kevin (Jonathan Lynn). There's Bob (Michael Pennington) and his wife Ginnie (Deborah Grant), Dennis (Gary Waldhorn) and Alex (Cecil Humphries) who is the youngest member of the team and is dating his bimbo girlfriend Sharon (Leslie Ash).

Follow the completely diverse 'eleven' while they prepare themselves to play an out of town team and to a greater degree, each other.

Later made into a comedy series starring Robert Daws and Brenda Blethyn.
