Overview: Dinnerladies is a BBC sitcom written by and starring Victoria Wood that chronicles the antics of a group of workers in a canteen in the north of England. Bren tries to maintain a semblance of order in amongst the chaos, while dealing with the canteen supervisor, slightly sex-obsessed cancer sufferer Tony. Dolly and Jean are the bickering menopausal older women, always at odds but best friends beneath it all. Then there's thick-as-two-short-planks Anita, and the terminally uninterested Twinkle, more concerned with having a good time than anything else. Making up the motley crew are military man handyman Stan, all rules and regulations, and ditzy Philippa, who never seems to get anything right.

Ok, ok I'm an odd one for liking this one, I suppose, but I really love Julie Walters, she's such a great actress and her role in this was hilarious! Victoria Wood isn't one of my favourites, but she plays Bren really well! Anyone else bother to watch this one and get a few laughs out of it?
