Birds Of A Feather - The Complete ITV Series 1 & 2

Come on and have a laugh with Chigwell's most famous daughters with the first two series of ITV's revived Birds Of A Feather.

Series 1: After nearly fifteen years, Chigwell's most famous daughters are finally back together and this time they're all sharing the same nest.

As the series begins, sisters Sharon (Pauline Quirke) and Tracey (Linda Robson) are living separate lives and Dorien (Lesley Joseph) has seemingly flown off into the sunset to live a jetsetting life as Foxy Cohen, the writer of best selling erotic memoir, Sixty Shades of Green. Tracey's marriage to former robber Darryl petered out years ago and although she has since remarried and got divorced again, is still living in relative comfort in Essex's legendary Chigwell with now 17 year old son, Travis (Charlie Quirke), who studies Latin and wants to become a barrister. Tracey gets by with a telesales job, but times aren't easy and she misses her older son Garth, who's been living in Australia.

Meanwhile Sharon scrapes a minimum wage in World of Quid, Essex's leading everything's a pound chain and living in a tiny flat that leaves a lot to be desired. After a chance meeting at Dorien's book signing in Chigwell High Street, their lives collide once more. Sharon moves back in with Tracey and an impending court case means that Dorien has nowhere to go so moves in too. The nest then gets busier still as Garth, his Australian partner Marcie and her 10 year old daughter Poppy unexpectedly make the long migration back to Chigwell. Join three generations of the family again for proof that for Sharon, Tracey and Dorien, Essex really is the only way.

Series 1 includes behind the scenes interviews with cast and crew including the three stars.

Series 2: Kicking off with a promised Christmas trip to Tenerife, courtesy of Dorien's continued income as Sixty Shades of Green author Foxy Cohen, the Birds share their many successes and failures, including Sharon's interview to become a spy, Tracey's trip to jail and a traditional cockney knees-up with London's Pearly Kings and Queens. But there are life-changing surprises too as Dorien comes face-to-face with someone she thought she'd never see again and a heart-stopping scare for both the Chigwell sisters in a poignant and hilarious two-part finale.

All 16 episodes of the two series are included in this 2 disc DVD set.

First released: Monday 23rd February 2015
