To get special offers and VIP treatment:

Ralph Tanner (Richard Briers) is a compulsive liar who will do anything to convince people that he is a successful "man of the world". In reality, he's a brash, incompetemt loser.

At the airport, on his way to holiday in Spain, he meets Brian Bryant (Michael Gambon). The two strike up an unlikely friendship, mainly because Brian is a gullible soul who believes all of Ralph's boastful stories.

In the second series, the pair are back in England, where they start working together as travelling salesmen.
