Birds of a Feather


Pauline is of course, most famous for her role as Sharon Theodopolopolous in 125 episodes of Birds of a Feather (from 1986 – 2015).


The first episode sees sisters Tracey Stubbs (Linda Robson) and Sharon Theodop-olopodos (Pauline Quirke) brought together when their husbands are sent to prison for armed robbery. Sharon, who lived in an Edmonton council flat, moves into Tracey's expensive house in Chigwell, Essex. Their  neighbour, and later friend, Dorien Green (Lesley Joseph), is a middle-aged married woman who is constantly having affairs with younger men. In the last two BBC series, the location is changed to Hainault before returning to Chigwell in Series 10 (the first aired on ITV).


The series ended its original BBC One run on Christmas Eve 1998 after nine years, but returned 15 years later, on 2 January 2014, on ITV, for its tenth series overall, running for eight episodes. The opening episode of the new series attracted nearly 8 million viewers, giving ITV its highest rated comedy since Barbara in 2000. In March 2015, it was confirmed that the show would return for a twelfth series (third on ITV).





Pauline plays the mysterious Susan Wright. For Pauline, one of the best things about working on Broadchurch was appearing on screen with her beloved pet Labrador, Bailey.


Broadchurch series one focused on the search for the boy's murderer by detectives Alec Hardy (played by David Tennant) and Ellie Miller (played by Olivia Colman). Chibnall was inspired by the Jurassic Coast of Britain to set his crime drama in a fictional, close-knit small town in Dorset. Principal photography began in August 2012, with location shooting occurring primarily in the towns and villages in Dorset, North Somerset, and South Gloucestershire and the city of Bristol. The production went to great lengths to keep secret the identity of the murderer. Cast and crew was nominated for many awards for series one, winning several British Academy Television (BAFTA) Awards and a BAFTA Craft Award.


A second series of Broadchurch was announced when the first series ended. The second series primarily focuses on two plot strands: the trial of Joe Miller and the re-opening of the Sandbrook case.
