Door Handle


Episode Info

Edina (Jennifer Saunders) becomes an over-scheduled mess when a computer organizer seizes control of her life. Obsessed with checking things off her list, she is unable to accomplish anything -- not even the refurbishment of her kitchen, which was burned down by friend Patsy (Joanna Lumley) in the previous episode, Absolutely Fabulous: Birth. Saffron (Julia Sawalha) berates her mother for her inability to focus, but the girl is so testy that it seems something else must be bothering her. Self-centered Eddy, however, doesn't notice; she's too busy breaking free of her digital shackles and contemplating the perfect door handle for her dream kitchen. A typical lunch run with Pats soon leads the would-be redecorator on a shopping trip that will take her around the world thanks to the supersonic power of the Concord jet. Originally broadcast on BBC 1 on March 30, 1995, Absolutely Fabulous: Door Handle marked series three, episode one of this popular Brit-com. The international scenes were shot on location in New York, a scenario that would be repeated several episodes later in Absolutely Fabulous: The End.
