Trivia

Granada had intended for the show to be a solo vehicle for Victoria Wood, but Wood asked for Julie Walters to receive equal billing, as she felt unable to "go it alone" and have the show focused solely on her. Wood's next show, for the BBC, was a solo project, the hugely acclaimed Victoria Wood: As Seen On TV. See more »
