All six episodes of the first series of funny lady Victoria Wood's sitcom set in a school dinner hall. In 'Monday', the dinnerladies are unimpressed by the attempts of Philippa - the new 'HR' woman - to motivate them. 'Scandal' sees the factory visited by a television crew making a docu-soap. In 'Royals', the canteen goes into overdrive when it is announced that HRH Prince James is to pay them a visit. In 'Moods', tensions run high in the canteen and Stan seeks solace by locking himself in the loo. 'Party' sees Bren dolling herself up for the Japanese-themed Christmas party, but will tonight be her night? In 'Night Shift', the staff walk out in protest at the methods employed by Tony's stand-in canteen supervisor, Nicola Bordeux.
Includes series 1 of the television comedy Dinnerladies
. The programme follows a group of Northern factory canteen workers who manage to find a seam of humour in their humdrum jobs. There's hard-working and normal Bren (Victoria Wood), her love-interest Tony the canteen manager, and a clutch of peculiarly eccentric characters on both sides of the counter. And then there's Julie Walters as Bren's filthy, drunken, scene-stealing mother Petula. Dinnerladies
is a classic magic blend of comedy and touching pathos.
