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'
WOW! This is a great show of sketches fantastically put together by
This show is a great mix of wonderfully funny sketches. It really is one of the only shows ever to have me constantly laughing for a straight hour. It was absolutely crammed with an all star cast and had me chuckling even hours after.
I stumbled across Dinnerladies by accident and loved Victoria Wood's work from there on. After watching other programmes such as Acorn Antiques, An Audience with Victoria Wood and Dinnerladies - this show has just proved that her talent as a comedienne just grows.
You cant miss it!
Ok, I admit, I'm a life long fan of all things Victoria Wood. She
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
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 ;)
This outstandingly written show was repeated again on BBC this
Christmas. Hilarious in 2000 and fun to re-watch a year or two ago when
last repeated but putting it on again for Christmas 2011? Can't they
commission her to do something new for us?
Victoria's talent is sadly underrated here on IMDb with a score that should be at least an 8 or 9 out of 10. She's such a talented artist and writer who deserves much more appreciation.
The BBC should definitely pay her for a new Christmas special after ten years!
Come back Victoria, we need you. There are plenty more people and things just waiting to be lampooned and we've never needed a good laugh more.
