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 »

On the strength of this I'm almost inclined to think that this format is the one Victoria does best. This format, originally done by her in 'Victoria Wood As seen on TV' allows Vic. to play to almost all of her strengths, (of which she has many)

Television parody, musical parody, movie parody, all this is very very good, and the BBCs Christmas budget made for an all star cast. And thank goodness its on DVD for us to cherish and cherish again. If I was running the BBC I'd have Victoria producing 13 of these every year from now till forever.

The only thing missing, (in my role as BBC boss I'd give Vic a second budget for this) is more in the style of 'Pat and Margaret'
