Birds of a feather was a great sitcom which is very underrated. It ran for 9 years & over 100 episodes yet only one DVD has been released so far. Best actress by far was Pauline Quirke whom was born to play Sharon (I disagree completely with the user above who says she was the worst) Linda & Lesley were also great Lesley especially in support. The best of 'Birds of a Feather' was the first 6 series with the original actors playing Darryl & Chris, their replacements are nowhere near as good (although Chris's replacement actyally played Chris first ironically). Classic episodes such as Dorien singing Madonna's 'Like a Virgin' & Sharon & Tracey going to LA thinking George Hamilton is a relative make this a show to remember & be watched by new generations.
I hope the whole series is released to DVD soon!
