Birds of a Feather: The Complete ITV Season 1

Preview by Jack Foley

WITH 7.8 million viewers tuning in live for its return, Birds of a Feather is the most successful British TV comedy show to hit ITV since 2000.

The excellent ratings keep on coming with 6.9 million tuning in live for Episode 2 and 6.2 million live for Episode 3 so this series of Birds of A Feather continues to be a success and satisfy the nation’s hunger for a good comedy.

The fabulous Chigwell Ladies, Tracey, Sharon and of course Dorien, have truly been welcomed back into our living rooms across the land.


It has been nearly 15 years since we last saw the Chigwell Three but their wit and charm has not diminished during that time. So where are the girls now?

As the series begins, we catch up with the ladies who are currently living separate lives. Tracey, who is no longer with Darryl, has recently divorced her money grabbing second husband and is living with her 17-year-old pampered son Travis, who has aspirations of becoming a barrister.

Sharon, meanwhile, barely exists in a tiny flat/hovel, which leaves a lot to be desired, spending her days working at Essex’s leading “everything’s a pound” chain, World of Quid.

And Dorien what can we say? She is trying to maintain her caviar cougar lifestyle having written the best-selling erotic memoir “60 Shades of Green” under the alias Foxy Cohen. But with an impending court case, Dorien finds herself needing a roof over her head.

Against her better judgment, Tracey offers Sharon and Dorien a place to stay. With an already full house, her son Garth (Matt Willis) unexpectedly returns from Australia with a girlfriend and stepdaughter in tow. With all of these personalities under one roof, the piercing one liners and scathing put downs are soon flying fast and furious!
