I remember the opening titles of Birds of a Feather probably more than anything else from that era of my life.  Along with my mum's commentary that the photos show the real actresses growing up together because they have been best mates since they were born.

Haha, you have to ask why they bothered making this episode.  Doesn't it remove the entire point not to have all the birds of a feather in it?

The previous arrangement of the theme tune is used, but following Quirke's departure, only Robson's lines are sung, resulting in a truncated version of the theme tune. The titles no longer feature the images of Sharon and Tracey, instead a dark blue background shows the programme title and writers, with credits for Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph only. The old video of a young Sharon and Tracey has also been removed as the programme moves in and out of the commercial break


In the Greek version the fat one is called Sharon MocChristsansan.

Not to sound bitchy but I caught the beginning of Loose Women the other day and Linda Robinson is in no position to call Pauline fat at this stage.


I once spotted Linda in my local Poundland on the day they were having a closing down sale. She's just like one of us, really.

When I was reading the Wikipedia article I discovered that the Sharon one of Birds of a Feather had a surname like Papadopadiplodocus.

I assumed someone had vandalised it, but it's true.

When you only have one bird of a feather, is it still called a bird of a feather, or is it just "a bird" by that point?

The 2020 episode should have been called A Bird of not Feather.

Just watched an episode of Birds of a Feather (series 11, episode 5) called Tracy's Choice out of curiosity. The sparring between Dorian and her book group nemesis was quite amusing, but I didn't laugh once, although I nearly smiled when Sharon talked about having a prawn ring.

There is also a Birds of the Feather behind the scenes programme on Youtube but I couldn't face watching it.
