Birds of a Feather (commonly abbreviated to BOAF) is a British sitcom originally broadcast on BBC 1 from 16 October 1989 to 24 December 1998, then revived on ITV from 2 January 2014 to 18 December 2017. Starring Pauline Quirke, Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph, it was created by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, who also wrote some of the episodes along with many other writers.
In the first episode, sisters Tracey Stubbs (Linda Robson) and Sharon Theodopolopodous (Pauline Quirke) are brought together when their husbands are sent to prison for armed robbery. Sharon, who lived in an Edmonton council flat, moves into Tracey's upmarket house in Chigwell, Essex. Their next-door neighbour and later friend, Dorien Green (Lesley Joseph), is a middle-aged married Jewish woman who is constantly having affairs with younger men. In the last two BBC series, the location is changed to nearby Hainault, Essex before returning to Chigwell in series 10 (the first aired on ITV).
The series' original run ended on Christmas Eve 1998 after nine years, but returned just over 15 years later, on 2 January 2014, this time on ITV rather the BBC's main channel, for its tenth series overall, running for eight episodes. The opening episode of the new series attracted almost eight million viewers, giving ITV its highest-rated comedy since Barbara in 2000. In 2015, there was an eleventh series (the second series on ITV) aired from December 2014 – January 2015. A twelfth series (the third on ITV) aired in 2016. A Christmas special was filmed in Malta, and aired on Christmas Eve 2016. Another Christmas special aired on 18 December 2017. A thirteenth series (the fourth on ITV) has been commissioned but it is uncertain when or if this will happen.
