It's sharp and dry and very,very good. Tip and Tash are wonderful. Odd moments are brilliantly done, such as when Queenie receives applause and a bouquet for directing the panto, she says on stage 'I can't take all the credit', and Eileen, Maggie Steed, remarks to Sal '...but she will' while smiling and clapping with all the others.
Sue Johnston is a real professional and totally believable as a widow without being cloy.
And Kate...well done for playing such a wimpy do-gooder full of good intentions but without a real life of your own.
Jennifer Saunder's stiff upper lip is a perfect antidote for Rosie's loopy behaviour, which I thought was ridiculous at first, but now I've got used to it and it is nice to see how she is protected by the other Guild members.
The vicar is a bit cardboardy and OTT as a character, but that is my only criticism and he became more believable when apologizing to Rosie.
The episode with the Doctor unable to examine his old headmistress was priceless.
This is a wonderful show that needs to be allowed to mature as the characters develop, but I love them all already.
