Birds of a Feather – Pauline Quirke, Linda Robson, Lesley Joseph – #101 – S09 E05 – Nuptials


Birds of a Feather (abbreviated to BOAF)[1][2] is a British sitcom originally broadcast on BBC One from 16 October 1989 to 24 December 1998, then revived on ITV from 2 January 2014 to 24 December 2020. The series stars Pauline Quirke and Linda Robson, with Lesley Joseph, created by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, who also wrote many of the episodes.

In the first episode, sisters Sharon and Tracey are brought together when their husbands are sent to prison for armed robbery. Sharon, who lives in an Edmonton council flat, moves into Tracey’s upmarket house in Chigwell, Essex. Their next-door neighbour and later friend, Dorien, is a middle-aged married Jewish woman who is constantly having affairs with younger men. In the last two BBC series, the location is changed to nearby Hainault, London, before returning to Chigwell in series 10 (the first aired on ITV). MORE AT LINK

This Episode

It is Kimberley and Garth’s wedding day. Darryl’s father gives Garth a £50 loan rather than a present, telling him to go away until he goes off the idea of marriage. The less impeccable side of Sharon and Tracey’s family arrives in a minibus and Kimberley’s mother complains throughout the wedding ceremony. Meanwhile, it’s Dorien’s 50th birthday – but feels old and lonely, and attempts to commit suicide.
