Birds of a Feather: The Complete Series 5
Everyone’s favourite Essex girls return with this fifth series of Birds of a Feather – one of the 1990s’ most successful, long-running and memorable sitcoms. This release comprises all thirteen episodes of Series Five along with the 1993 Christmas Special, featuring guest appearances by George Hamilton, George Wendt and Richard Branson.
Created by the legendary comedy partnership of Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran (The New Statesman), the series chronicles the misadventures of Sharon and Tracey (Pauline Quirke and Linda Robson) – North London-born sisters left to fend for themselves, 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 had remained in an Edmonton tower block. Now, Sharon lives with Tracey, enjoying a few home comforts and offering much-needed 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...
