Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A British variation on a well-worn American TV and movie plot device, the comedy-drama series Take Three Girls was largely set in a South London apartment. Sharing these quarters were three lovely and likable young ladies: cello-playing debutante Victoria (Liza Goddard), art student Avril (Angela Down), and single mom (and erstwhile actress) Kate (Susan Jameson). When the series returned for a second season, Avril and Kate were gone, replaced by a journalist named Jennie (Carolyn Seymour) and a "Yankee" named Lulie (Barra Grant). The most memorable aspect of the series was its popular theme song, performed by Pentagle. Created by Gerald Savory, Take Three Girls lasted three seasons on BBC1, its 18 50-minute episodes airing between 1969 and 1971. Eleven years after its cancellation, the series was briefly revived, with some of the original cast members, as Take Three Women.
