It’s a small role, but for any fans of both Coupling and Only Fools and Horses, it is fun to see Bellman appear in an old episode of the sitcom before she became the ‘histrionic’ Jane. This was one of Bellman’s first acting roles, before going on to star in Coupling and Jekyll. Both Coupling and Jekyll were run by Steven Moffat, a director and writer with an impressive number of writing credits behind him within the British canon - including Doctor Who and Sherlock. Coupling was seen as Britain’s answer to Friends, because of many key similarities between the two shows. Airing on BBC for four years, it followed the lives of six friends in their early thirties as they deal with dating, sex, friendship, and other mishaps.
