Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Debuting November 19, 1992, the BBC1 sitcom Sitting Pretty concerned the fabulously wealthy Annie Briggs (Diane Bull), otherwise known as "the Jackie O of Bethnal Green." When her husband Boris died, leaving her nothing but debts, the impoverished but still haughty Annie moved into a dismal flat with her daughter Tiffany (Alison Lomas). Eventually even this residence proved too costly, forcing Annie and Tiffany to take residence in Sunnyside Farm, a tumbledown domicile owned by Annie's parents. The heroine was obliged to share her quarters with her dowdy, ill-tempered twin sister Sylvie (Heather Tobias), who had always resented Annie's once-lavish lifestyle and took every opportunity to twist the knife now that she and Annie were on equal terms. The 13th and final episode of Sitting Pretty aired in Britain on December 29, 1993.
