"I don't want my buttocks lifted. I'm quite happy with them bobbling along where they are, thankyou."
4 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

A short-lived but very amusing series of plays from Victoria Wood. Actually

  • it's a shame that there never was another series because I absolutely


loved them.

Each one features Victoria Wood as herself, finding herself into a different hilarious predicament.

Many of Victoria's other regular co-stars popped up in this series as well. Including Julie Walters, Celia Imrie, Susie Blake, and other famous faces included Una Stubbs, and Jane Horrocks.
