Publisher's Summary

Four episodes from the second series of Victoria Wood's canteen comedy.

In "Catering", Bren wants to show Sigourney a typical day in the canteen - but the work experience boy has jammed a 20-foot ladder right across the cooker, and the breadwoman can't bob under.

In "Minnellium", the firm are catering for the firm's millennium dinner at the Old Brewery. Then Tony finds something on the fire escape that puts the dinner right out of their minds.

In "Gravy", the winds of change blow through the canteen when the new self-clear system begins. Bren doesn't like it, as clearing the tables was always her favourite bit.

In "Toast", Stan is hoping for a proposal, Bren is being coached for TV, and Dolly is upset by the new uniforms. Petula is fading fast, and it's the most important day since Tony and Bren got together.

Julie Walters, Celia Imrie, and Thelma Barlow also star in this trayful of episodes from the situation comedy hotplate.

    "Loved This So Much. I Want More!"
    If you could sum up Dinnerladies 2 in three words, what would they be?

    More Dinnerladies Please


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dinnerladies 2?

    When the canteen was going to get painted and they were trying to help the bread lady as she was stuck behind a ladder and needed to get out but she could not bend down because she had had an operation... The entire series is just fabulous!


    What does Victoria Wood bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Bren is the centre of this canteen world, her character is funny, warm , sweet, tragic and loveable. I would watch this for as long as Victoria would make it but sadly it has stopped much to my disappointment . I do have the series on dvd. I really love it. Great series!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes , I have listened to it many times since I got it.


    Any additional comments?

    Truly funny and witty.

    "Fantastic and funny and sad and wonderful."

    The dialogue really comes through as you listen rather than watch. superb and wonderful and sad. The song at the end is so moving and real. Love it.

    "So, so good"

    This is just pitch perfect writing; funny, well observed and entertaining. It's very well acted and notable that many of the younger actresses now have amazing careers.
    Any downsides? Where are the other episodes?!!
