Birds of a Feather: The Complete BBC Series 1 [DVD]
Everyone's favourite Essex girls return with this DVD release of the very first series of Birds of a Feather - one of the 1990s' most successful, long-running and memorable sitcoms. This release includes for the first time the 1989 Christmas Special! Created by legendary screenwriters Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran (The New Statesman, Shine on Harvey Moon), the series chronicles the misadventures of Sharon and Tracy (Pauline Quirke and Linda Robson) North London-born sisters left to fend for themselves, both financially and emotionally, when their husbands are jailed for armed robbery. The girls have lived very different lives, Tracey enjoying the neo-Georgian splendour of 'Dalentrace' the luxury home paid for by husband Darryl's criminal activities while her sister remained in an Edmonton tower block. Now, Sharon has moved in with Tracey to enjoy a few home comforts and offer moral support - even if some of her habits prove a tad annoying. And if life in Chigwell sometimes seems a little dull, there are always the extra-marital antics of their man-eating Jewish neighbour, Dorien (Lesley Joseph), to keep them entertained...
