    Default Janine Duvitski

    Janine Duvitski (born Christine Janine Drzewicki; June 1952) is probably best known as Jane in Waiting for God; but she also starred in One Foot in the Grave as neighbour Pippa Trench to Richard Wilson's character Victor Meldrew. She played the wife of Angus Deayton's character. Anyone remember the name of Angus Deayton's character?

    Strangely enough, Jane played a ditsy part in both Waiting for God & One Foot in the Grave

    The latest appearence has to be in Benidorm

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    I remember Janine in many brilliant TV plays of the 70s and 80s, when we had REAL drama. Anyone remember her terrific performance in 'Abigail's Party'? Great actress and still going strong. Loved her in 'One Foot In The Grave', one of my favourite comedies, and 'Waiting For God'.

    I love her too. Anyone remember her as the petrol pump attendant who worked with Hazel O'Conner in Breaking Glass?

    Me



    I love her early work back in the late 70s, stuff like that and the Mike Leigh films she did, she actually looks rather like an ex of mine there. She's brilliant in Alan Clarke's Diane.

    She'll be starring in new BBC2 sitcom Boy Meets Girl next week playing the mother of the transgender lead character.

    Her daughter, Ruby Bentall (Poldark, Lark Rise To Candleford) is also a very fine actress
