This series; originally started in 1989 and ran for nearly 10 years, saw wealthy housewife Tracey's seemingly legit husband Daryl sentenced to 12 years in prison for armed robbery along with her brother-in-law Chris...
Tracey's council-estate sister Sharon Theodopolopoudos, (she married a Greek) moves into Tracey's million pound Chigwell home, seemingly to keep her sister company through the transition.Nothing to do with getting away from her Edmonton Tower Block of course.
Birds Of A Feather is a sharply written, superbly acted, laugh-out-loud comedy, telling the story of these sisters' daily struggle to make-ends-meet and still be able to afford a night out on the razz.
Life however is never dull in Chigwell, especially not with the addition of their nosy, snobby, sex-mad man-eater neighbour Dorien Green.
Dorien constantly riles the girls' working-class background, never missing an opportunity to make an affectionate dig at their 'C&A' clothes and cockney accents.Even though these course prisoners wives are the best friends she's ever had.
Over the course of the series' run, we see these characters not only become household names, but the actors, Pauline Quirke, Lesley Joseph and Linda Robson become stronger in their performances and abilities than you would ever have believed possible, leading them on to such remarkable performances as the terrifying 'The Sculptress' in which Pauline Quirke plays multiple serial killer Olive Martin.
This series is truly in a league of its own.Words don't do it justice and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
You'll laugh with them, and cry with them.With Shal, Trace and Dor; you'll enjoy the ride.
