I TALK TO Phoebe Waller-Bridge

There’s no denying that in the past six months, BBC Three have produced some of their best work to date; Thirteen, Murder In Successville, Witless and now Fleabag which I’ve seen three episodes of and think it’s some of the best work they have done.

Written and created by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Broadchurch), Fleabag began as an Edinburgh Fringe show and follows then life of a twenty-something year-old woman who we only know by the name Fleabag.


Hurling herself headlong at modern living she is thrown roughly up against the walls of contemporary London, she sleeps with anyone who dares to stand too close, squeezes money from wherever she can, rejects anyone who tries to help her, but manages to keep up her bravado throughout.
