Where would we be without DinnerladiesBy H0M3RJ4Y from vale of glamorgan , 04 Feb 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]The key to comedy is ............
When you start watching Dinnerladies you will notice it is slow but don't give up.
Victoria Wood builds up the characters in the first episodes so skillfully that you feel you have known them much longer and you cannot help but fall in love the simple characters as they go about their mundane jobs.
When this was first aired on television I did't watch it, my wife did and from just overhearing the dialogue between the central characters I was drawn closer to the screen and the almost documentary life of these wonderful dinnerladies.

"Is Genitalia The Silver Stuff You Drape Over The Branches"?By a customer , 31 May 2012'Dinnerladies' is a wonderful, gentle, witty sitcom, from the Victoria Wood stable.
I both laughed and cried at the situations in each episode.
a good laughBy Minty8 (196 reviews) from Randalstown, Antrim , 14 May 2011Good wee comedy series and all on the one disc which is always a plus point. A good dvd for any fan of the series
Dinnerladies series 1By a customer from Glasgow , 30 Sep 2010Enjoyed this series on UK Gold years back. However timeless and not the least bit dated. Great comedy very well delivered by the entire cast. Some great 'throw away' lines. Victoria Wood's writing skill is often overlooked. Highly recommended
Very very goodBy dally (297 reviews) from Belfast , 28 Feb 2010Humour at it's best. A top rate cast with witty banter and great characters. Very, very enjoyable.
Sad & FunnyBy a customer from Milton Keynes , 15 Apr 2009From the opening bittersweet song to the final credits it just makes me smile an ironic smile. The cast are brilliant and make it seem so effortless. For anyone who has ever worked anywhere, ever, it just rings true. It encourages us to hope that we are not the only ones thinking 'Is it just me or...?'
