Series 1 - Episode 1 Psychobitches



After a promising pilot last year, this fitfully funny set of vignettes based around famous women visiting a therapist (Rebecca Front) returns as a series. Boasting comedic talent such as Sharon Horgan, Samantha Spiro, Julia Davis, Katy Brand and Mark Gatiss — dragged up as Joan Crawford — it’s a riot when it does very silly: Sylvia Plath channelling Pam Ayres in an attempt to lift her dark moods; the squabbling, doll-sized Brontë sisters, and Jacqueline du Pré communicating only via cello.


Comedy sketch show starring Rebecca Front as a psychiatrist who conducts therapy sessions with some of history's most famous women. Sylvia Plath tries to write cheerier poems, the Bronte sisters squabble like petulant toddlers, while Eva Peron struggles to deal with feelings of grandiosity. An ageing Margot Fonteyn refuses to hang up her ballet slippers. Joan Crawford and Bette Davis compete over who was the biggest screen siren, and Audrey Hepburn tests the therapist's patience with her cutesy quirks. With Julia Davis, Sharon Horgan and Mark Gatiss.
