Lame Ducks is a British television sitcom made by the BBC in 1984 and written by Peter J. Hammond.

The series starred John Duttine as Brian Drake, a man who, when suffering a serious injury after being hit by a truck, can no longer work and decides to head off to live as a hermit; as he goes along, he is joined by various other outcasts, including a woman called Angie (played by Lorraine Chase). The group eventually settle at a derelict railway station.

Later, a private detective called Ansell (played by Brian Murphy), hired by Drake's wife (Primi Townsend), locates the group, but as an outcast himself, decides to join them.
