Absolutely Fabulous

The most decadent sitcom started in the 90s and is still required viewing for anyone curious to know how London media types live. Meet Patsy and Eddy - the fad-obsessed, Stolly-swilling heroines of Ab Fab. PR agent Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders) is middle-aged, twice-divorced and incredibly irresponsible. Aiding her on her self-destructive, attention-seeking antics is magazine fashion director Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley). The pair are desperate to stay young and cool and their appetite for drugs and booze knows no limit. No wonder that Edina's straight-laced, sensible daughter Saffron (Julia Sawalha) has to pick up the pieces, especially as Edina's sarcastic and indifferent mother (June Whitfield) doesn't want to get involved. Developed from a French & Saunders sketch, Ab Fab only got more hilarious and outrageous over its five series run. Car crash comedy has never been funnier.
