Description

Vyvyan is a medical student with spiky red hair and four metal stars across his forehead. The regular target of his rage is Rick, an arrogant little poseur who sees himself as a real anarchist, but is in fact a cowardly Cliff Richard obsessive. The only common ground that Rik and Vyv share is their mutual loathing of Neil, a refugee from the hippy era whose flower power is definitely wilting. Of course, in amongst this bunch of misfits, Mike sees himself as the house cool guy. He’s a well-dressed, coiffured smoothie who thinks he always has the situation under control.
