I am watching Birds of a Feather on the Comedy Central X. I remember my parents always having it on in the background when I was younger. I totally love it!!

There are so many laugh out loud moments!

Why they have not got all the series out on DVD is beyond me. I think it is a classic!

This is where a good facebook petition group would come in useful!

Anybody agree?

I emailed the BBC and got the standard response about releasing it. All they said is that there were no plans at present , but a possibility in the future , and have I looked at other comedy classics released instead? That was back in February.

One of my favourite shows.

I have never understood why it's never been released either. I think I saw series 1 on DVD once - but certainly not all the seasons.

I love Birds of a feather, I'm so glad that they're being shown again.

I love the episode where the girls get locked in a run down car park and Sharon gets hysterical and tries to eat the car seat.

Another classic moment is when Dorien stands in for Sharon at a big karaoke event by singing 'Like A Virgin' by Madonna.

Series 1 was released on DVD, I remember seeing it in the shops, but no others were released.

Around this time last year there was a talk of the series coming back.

Taken drom this site back in May last year.


Lesley Joseph has given her support to a potential Birds Of A Feather comeback.

Speaking on This Morning, the actress - Dorian Green in the classic sitcom - revealed that both she and Linda Robson (Tracey Stubbs) would like to do more episodes.

"I know Linda and I would like to do more," she said. "I can't go out in the street anymore without someone saying to me 'Please bring back Birds Of A Feather!' It was deeply loved and still is, so it's just a question now of waiting to see."

She continued: "The television market has changed a lot, but lots of things have been revisited. Ab Fab, Only Fools And Horses.

"So bring back Birds, I say! Even just for one Christmas special."

Earlier this year, Pauline Quirke sparked rumours that the series was set to return.

+++++++

I was never a fan and would prefer they didn't. Not because I didn't like the show but because it was of it's time. IMO it wouldn't work as they're all so much older and socirty has changed.
Did you see the horrific reunion version of To the manor born they did?

the first 2 series are being released on DVD in August

http://www.networkdvd.net/product_in...oducts_id=1202
and
http://www.networkdvd.net/product_in...oducts_id=1203

although I think they've got the wrong Darryl on the Series 1 pic (that's a picture of the actor who played him in series 7), and the picture of Pauline Quirk and Laura Robson looks like a picture from a later series too (whereas the pic on the S2 cover looks more like it was taken around the time of that series).

Great to see an official release of Series 2.

I bought the complete Series 1 - Series 9 DVD set on iOffer a few months ago for 19, the recordings are VHS quality and obviously not official but this didnt bother me as there were no official releases of the later series.

No its the correct Daryl on the series 1 DVD cover (ie Alun Lewis). Doug McFerran played him from Series 7 on, he had very little hair

Favourite episode is The Front, where Sharon pretends she is an author instead of Dorien.

I've watched a couple of clips and episodes on youtube a few times when my mum told me about it. It's quite good.
