Absolutely Fabulous Passports

In the 2001 episode of Absolutely Fabulous, Edina, Patsy, Saffy, and Bubble take a day trip to Paris. The episode is longer than normal, and mostly shot on location in the city.

There’s a scene on the Eurostar, where they compare passport photos.

This is Saffron’s.

She was born on 17th March 1975, so was 26 at this point. And she has a massive signature.

Here’s Patsy’s.

As you can see, Patsy still has an old black passport (blue if you prefer), which must have been (almost) out of date by then. She was born in Paris, on a date scrawled out. And she is shorter than I imagined she would be.

This is Edina’s.

At the time of broadcast, she has just turned 50.
