Our Friend Victoria

This fine tribute to Victoria Wood continues...

This fine tribute to Victoria Wood continues with Richard E Grant examining how his friend’s work was filled with her special take on the British class system and her pitch-perfect observations of people from all walks of life, particularly those who shared her Northern roots.

Among this week’s gems are Victoria’s classic stand-up routine as the beret-clad friend of ‘Kimberley’ and her hilarious role as the gormless, pudding-obsessed waitress who could only ask, ‘Is it on the trolley?’

The episode also examines how she poked fun at snobbery, and includes clips of Susie Blake’s sneering continuity announcer, Celia Imrie’s pretentious Miss Babs, the owner of Acorn Antiques, and Patricia Routledge as know-all Kitty.
