WARM & FUNNY,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Barbara - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
I do not remember this being on terrestrial TV and only came across it by accident when surfing the net. It tells the story of Barbara, a no-nonsense Yorkshire woman and her family, not to mention her colleague at the GP surgery, Doreen, (mad as a hatter). Barbara's family are all a bit idiosyncratic and she rules them with a rod of iron.
The wonderful Jean Alexander is in two of the episodes, as the mother-in-law from Hell. These two episodes are brilliant. I have now watched this series several times and enjoy it more every time.
Would recommend, much funnier and based in reality, than some of the current sitcoms on offer.
