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
If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
