Comedy about the staff of a northern English factory. Bren, a kindly woman, tries to help everyone with their problems, while attempting to ignore her drunken mother who lives in a fantasy world where she hobnobs with the rich and famous. Her boss Tony likes to make out that he's an ultra-laddish sexist pervert, although it's all just a cover for being too shy to ask Bren out. The older members of the team, Dolly and Jean, live only for the not-so-subtle bitching war they have with each other. Dolly is preoccupied with her weight and Jean's fed up with her husband. Meanwhile, Twinkle, described sarcastically by Tony as 'The Pixie With The Laughing Face' is always in a foul mood, and Anita simply hasn't a clue. Add in Stan the handyman, who busies himself with 'toaster emergencies' and 'canine faces alerts' and Phillipa the neurotic human resources officer and it's an unusual day when 'any blooming work' gets done.Written by

I absolutely love this show! It's the highlight of my week, watching it on a Friday night. It has me in hysterics from start to finish. I've heard a lot of people say they don't like it, but I just can't see why. It captures men and women perfectly, and that's REAL men and women, not just stereotypes. The way Tony just gives up when the girls start talking about PMS or blokes, the way Dolly criticises Jean in practically every other sentence, the way Bren and Tony never quite get together and you really want them to, the way Stan won't go in the ladies loo... Hilarious every time! Ok, it hasn't got MUCH staying power, as they talk about mostly current issues, but I hope it goes on for a good long time. I f every comedy was as good as this, the world would be a much happier place. Victoria Wood is a comic genius and totally underrated. She totally understands real people's thoughts and feelings! If only Friends was this good...
