Whatever happened to Hinge and Bracket ?

There are sweet two ladies who have become great friends through their blog sites. But its a remarkable coincidence that at the same time the fabulous comedy duo Hinge and Bracket disappeared from our screens.

Are these two now Doris and The Clone

Now, I have been wrong before, but these two characters bear a remarkable resemblance to dear old Doris Brazil from Appleton Marsh and a rather interesting character called Blarney Crone.
Now, if these two are not Dr Evadne Hinge and Dame Hilda Bracket, then they definitely should be.
