Lesley Joseph interview

Birds of a Feather favourite Lesley Joseph on bringing back the sitcom, self-criticism, and re-discovering childhood talents.

Steven MacKenzie, The Big Issue, 13th February 2014

Love is blind - at times in tonight's episode, quite literally. Unseen for years, Sharon's feckless husband Chris turns up on her doorstep. He wants a divorce, not on principle something Sharon objects to; although on meeting his intended - the charming, blind Angie - she is given pause for reflection. Why do Chris and Angie seem so happy? Should she inform Angie just what kind of a philandering idiot Chris is? Or has he changed? Tracey isn't convinced, and soon discovers the real reason for Chris's need for legal closure.

Birds of a Feather: episode 4, ITV, review

Watching Birds of a Feather (ITV) last night was rather like being sucked back into the Eighties, which is not surprising, as it originated there.
