Barbara - The Complete Series

BAFTA-nominated Gwen Taylor is Barbara Liversidge, a blunt-talking, heftily opinionated and occasionally ranting 52-year-old Yorkshirewoman in this hit comedy series. Barbara is the lynchpin of a mildly dysfunctional family that includes Ted (Sam Kelly), her cab-driver husband of 35 years and a man who learned long ago to play second fiddle, neurotic daughter Linda and despised son-in-law Martin (Mark Benton); Barbara's nouveau-riche sister Jean (Sherrie Hewson), is the victim of many a withering look and practised put-down, while son Neil and mother-in-law Queenie also find plenty of ways to test Barbara's dwindling patience...

Featuring a guest cast that includes Jean Alexander, Rob Brydon, Helen Atkinson-Wood, Mark Gatiss, Roy Barraclough, Bernard Cribbins and Joanna Van Gyseghem, this set comprises all three series and the pilot episode, screened as part of ITV's Comedy Firsts season in 1995.
