Trivia

The white and blue windowpane check gown Honeysuckle Weeks wears as Alice Cottisloe in "Plots and Proposals" when she answers the door is the same costume Billie Piper (Fanny Price) wears in Mansfield Park (2007), Rosamund Stephen (Henrietta Musgrove) wears in Persuasion (2007), Victoria Hopkins wears in The Regency House Party (2004), and Emma Thompson wears in Sense and Sensibility (1995). The same costume is also worn in Byron (2003) by an extra at the London party where Byron meets Annabella Milbanke. See more »

Goofs

The sketch "Plots and Proposals" is set at the time of the Battle of Waterloo (1815), yet in the interiors of the country house, electrical light switches are clearly visible in almost every shot. See more »

How does she manage to keep getting better and better?
7 April 2001 | by (Manchester, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ok, I admit, I'm a life long fan of all things Victoria Wood. She captured my imagination through my school years and has just stuck with me ever since. As one of Britains best loved female comediennes though at least I'm not alone.

This show aired over Xmas 2000 and really took me by surprise. Usually only the Simpsons manages to deliver a continual stream of laugh after laugh but Victoria Wood manages to pull it off fantastically and I thoroughly enjoyed watching it.

Naturally the addition of the wonderful Julie Walters assists no ends, with the best clip having to be their mutual portrayal of two war time women. Julie Walters line regarding the death of her husband has to be the funniest thing I've heard in years ;)

Highly recommended.
