Product Overview

A hilarious and heartwarming comedy from the creators of Absolutely Fabulous, Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley. Welcome to Clatterford, a small town big enough to have a good cross section of people, local shops and a late night convenience store. It's also small enough where everyone knows everybody's business but doesn't talk about it unless asked. Cue the Women's Guild, who aren't afraid to ask. Their topical meetings -- ranging from 'How to solve world poverty' one week to 'the benefits of using marrow in jam' the next -- are the center of village life, like it or not.

Editors Note
Note CLATTERFORD is a British sitcom (known as JAM AND JERUSALEM in its native country) that centers on a group of women living in the small town of the title. These residents have formed the Women's Guild, a group that meets to discuss topics both local and global in scope. A treasure trove of British comedy actors helps flesh out the storylines, with Dawn French (THE VICAR OF DIBLEY) joined in the cast by Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley from ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS, Sue Johnston from THE ROYLE FAMILY, and David Mitchell from PEEP SHOW. The complete first season is included here.

Review Fans of Absolutely Fabulous and the French & Saunders duo cannot be forewarned strongly enough: with Jam & Jerusalem (known as Clatterford outside the UK), writer/comedienne Jennifer Saunders strays into unfamiliar territory, away from the drug- and champagne-soaked outrageousness of Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone, and the off-the-wall wackiness of F & S...Ms Saunders's new brainchild deftly blends comedy and drama in this warm-hearted look at life in the West Country village of Clatterford St Mary in Devon, a place not unlike the town where her family reside in real life. It's the small, local church's Women's Guild that's at the heart of the story (think the Women's Institute in Calendar Girls).
