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.

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.
