The biggest Christmas cracker of them all.
28 February 2016 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I find it so hard to believe that nobody has reviewed this show. It's hard to believe it dates back to Christmas 1992, the humour is so fresh and original still.

The format definitely worked, Victoria Wood and Duncan Preston doing a Richard and Judy (This Morning) style show, which would run all day, where they'd be rude to guests, have meaningless conversations and criticise each other. 'The Mall' was presented as the daily soap opera, and the late Alan Rickman was ignored in an interview.

It's an absolute joy from start to finish, truly laugh out loud funny, so many good points, The Mall is sensationally funny, and the re-introduction of Mrs Overall makes it all the more special. Julie Walters grumpy mum and serious daughter is one of my favourite clips, as is Victoria's mature School Girl.

If you like a laugh, do what you can to track it down, it's criminal that it never got a DVD release. Wood and Walters, I salute you.

9/10
