This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Bottle Fairy
Bottle Fairy
The series is a St. Elsewhere-style Mind Screw.
Steven den Beste has a bizarre theory about what's going on in this show:

This show is about the crazy little sister of our long-suffering male protagonist. The fairies are toy fairies that come in bottles; but she believes that she is the fairies, and the series is largely from her POV, so she is filmed as she sees herself - as the fairies. We only get to see her as she truly is in the last episode.

This is very unlikely to be what the writers were thinking, but it makes a twisted kind of sense. Still, if you read the long form - it's kind of depressing.
