Barbara - The Complete First Series

Barbara - The Complete First Series

Developed from a pilot in ITV's 1995 Comedy Firsts season, this acclaimed sitcom cast Gwen Taylor as Barbara Liversidge, a blunt-talking, heftily opinionated, advice-giving and occasionally ranting 52-year-old Yorkshirewoman.

Sam Kelly (Porridge, 'Allo 'Allo!) also stars as Ted, Barbara's cab-driver husband of 35 years and a man who has learned long ago to play second fiddle, while Sherrie Hewson (Coronation Street) is her nouveau-riche sister, Jean - victim of many a withering look and practised put-down. Rob Brydon, Helen Atkinson-Wood and Zoe Lucker also appear in this first series, originally screened in 1999. Also includes the original Comedy Firsts pilot episode.

First released: Sunday 12th September 2010
