Take A Letter Mr. Jones was a British television sitcom that aired from 1981 to 1982. The show revolved around the character of Mr. James 'Jim' Jones, played by John Inman, who worked as a typist and general assistant at a small legal firm in London. Rula Lenska played the role of Miss Hunter, Jim's boss, and the owner of the legal firm. She was a stern and no-nonsense character, who often took her frustrations out on Jim, but also showed a soft side towards him. Gina Maher played the role of Sue, Jim's colleague and friend, who was always ready to gossip and have a good time.

The show's premise was based on the comedic interactions between the characters, their office life, and their personal lives. Jim was always trying to impress Miss Hunter, but often ended up making mistakes that caused him to be scolded by her. Sue was always trying to set Jim up with a boyfriend, often leading to hilarious misunderstandings.

The show's humor was largely based on the over-the-top antics of the characters, such as Jim's exaggerated facial expressions and Miss Hunter's strict mannerisms. The dialogue was snappy and filled with witty one-liners, making it a fast-paced and entertaining watch.

Aside from the main characters, there were also recurring characters that added to the show's comedic value, including Miss Hunter's nephew, who was always causing trouble, and a rival legal firm that was constantly trying to poach Miss Hunter's clients.

Overall, Take A Letter Mr. Jones was a lighthearted and enjoyable sitcom that provided viewers with a humorous look into the world of office life in the early 1980s. The show was well-received by audiences and critics alike, and is still remembered today as a classic of British television comedy.
