Storyline

Comedy about the staff of a northern English factory. Bren, a kindly woman, tries to help everyone with their problems, while attempting to ignore her drunken mother who lives in a fantasy world where she hobnobs with the rich and famous. Her boss Tony likes to make out that he's an ultra-laddish sexist pervert, although it's all just a cover for being too shy to ask Bren out. The older members of the team, Dolly and Jean, live only for the not-so-subtle bitching war they have with each other. Dolly is preoccupied with her weight and Jean's fed up with her husband. Meanwhile, Twinkle, described sarcastically by Tony as 'The Pixie With The Laughing Face' is always in a foul mood, and Anita simply hasn't a clue. Add in Stan the handyman, who busies himself with 'toaster emergencies' and 'canine faces alerts' and Phillipa the neurotic human resources officer and it's an unusual day when 'any blooming work' gets done.

This is excellent.
8 July 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Must be honest here, when it first came on TV I thought it was for the older generations. Then I watched just one episode (not sure which) and loved it.

The show only has 16 episodes (like many classics) but each one of them is so well scripted, cast and fresh it makes it a pleasure for continual viewing. Victoria Wood has excelled herself with this sitcom and with the final episode closing the canteen it has limited it to the 16 episodes for pure class.

This is a must for anyone who likes light hearted sitcom that doesn't have swearing, no filth (apart from innuendos here and there) and who needs to be cheered up.
