Hinge and Bracket
Three comic radio series

Dr Evadne Hinge and Dame Hilda Bracket were the stage names of George Logan and Patrick Fyffe respectively. The characters of Hinge (somewhat brittle and acerbic) and Bracket (more flamboyant) were elderly intellectual female musicians; in these personae the male Logan and Fyffe played and sang songs to comic effect. They made many appearances on television and radio. The two generally performed together, but on rare occasions appeared separately. Logan declined to continue the characterisation of Dr Hinge after Fyffe died.

Hinge and Bracket appeared in 1974 at the Edinburgh Festival. They toured for several years before appearing on the BBC Radio 4 series The Enchanting World of Hinge and Bracket, which ran from 1977 to 1979. Their TV show Dear Ladies was shown on BBC Two from 1983 to 1985. In 1983, they appeared in a televised Royal Opera House production of the opera Die Fledermaus. The Random Jottings of Hinge and Bracket ran on BBC Radio 2 from 1982 to 1989 and At Home with Hinge and Bracket ran for a single series in 1990.
