If this is Tuesday, it must be England #79 (an early birthday edition on Monday)

Happy Birthday to one of my favorite British actresses, Felicity Kendal.

The 1975 television series, The Good Life, is one of her best known works.  It's the hilarious tale of a suburban couple, Tom and Barbara Good, who give up the rat race in favor of self-sufficiency, much to the chagrin of their snooty but lovable next-door neighbors, Margo and Jerry Leadbetter.

Felicity Kendal, Richard Briers, Penelope Keith, and Paul Eddington as Barbara and Tom Good, and Margo and Jerry Leadbetter.

A more recent work, Rosemary and Thyme, is another favorite - Pam Ferris as Laura Thyme and Felicity Kendal as Rosemary Boxer are a sleuthing gardening team.

Rosemary and Thyme is available on DVD as is The Good Life although it is a little harder to find.  I highly recommend both.

  1. I absolutely love Felicity Kendal, and her role as Barbara Good was wonderful. I haven't had the chance to see Rosemary and Thyme yet, but looking forward to it.
