      Season 2 – dinnerladies

      1999 Comedy List

The crew consists of a motley mix of characters, from assistant manager Bren, who has a not-so-secret crush on manager Tony, to Bren's selfish mother, Petula (played by Julie Walters) and Twinkle, the youngest member of the bunch, who lives with her ailing mother, and the catty Dolly, whose tart tongue shreds co-workers and customers alike.

      Previous Nancy Banks-Smith Guardian Dinnerladies returned to soothe and confuse with its extraordinarily tangential conversations, as if each thought were bumping off the one in front and shooting away at an angle. Feb 25, 2020 Full Review Next
