Victoria Wood is unquestionably Britain's funniest and best-loved female TV star, winning the hearts of audiences with her brilliant character monologues, comic songs and observational comedy as well as producing hilarious, and often poignant dramas. Working regularly with the same group of acclaimed actors – including Julie Walters, Celia Imrie, Duncan Preston and Susie Blake – she has built up an unrivalled body of work. This extensive collection of BBC titles contains some of her finest programmes, from her BBC breakthrough As Seen on TV which included the infamous Ballad of Barry and Freda (Let's Do It) and Acorn Antiques (also presented here on one DVD) to the one-off 80 minute show Victoria Wood: Live in Your Own Home. The collection showcases her comic script writing in the six playlets of Victoria Wood Presents, focusing on the various annoyances of modern life – from health farms to video dating – and the feature length drama Pat and Margaret in which she and Julie Walters play very different sisters, reunited after 27 years apart. It also includes the documentary series Victoria’s Empire in which Victoria Wood undertakes a fascinating quest for the legacy of Queen Victoria, visiting places around the world that bear their name, from Fort Victoria in Ghana to Victoria, Nova Scotia
Consultant surgeon Sheila Sabatini rules her operating theatre with a sharp tongue and a withering sense of humour. Her dedication and determination to succeed in a maledominated world make her a force to be reckoned with, and her colleagues at the Gillies Hospital have learned the hard way not to mess with her! Sheila’s intimidating manner may hide a soft centre, but only those who dare to get close enough discover that; they include administrator and best friend, Joyce, and anaesthetist Jonathan Haslam, a man brave enough to pursue a romantic relationship with the spiky Mrs. Sabatini... Nichola McAuliffe gives a memorable performance as Sheila Sabatini, with Duncan Preston (Victoria Wood: As Seen on TV) starring as Jonathan Haslam. Featuring scripts by Graeme Garden among other contributors, Surgical Spirit was a huge success with the viewing public, running for an impressive seven series between 1989 and 1995. This release collects all seven series on DVD for the first time.

Tom Hollander stars in the complete award-winning comedy series, as seen on BBC TV. Tom Hollander (‘In the Loop’, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’) stars as the Rev Adam Smallbone. He’s a Church of England vicar, newly promoted from a sleepy rural parish to the inner-city world of St Saviour’s in east London. It is a world he has little experience of, and it shows. In this series, Adam’s church gets a makeover, complete with plasma screens and a smoothie bar, Adam researches some poledancers and then succumbs to envy when he hears an old rival on ‘Thought for the Day’. Adam’s new ‘bromance’ with Leon comes to a crashing halt at an embarrassing vicarage dinner party. Adam also has a crisis of faith and then gets drunk at a Vicars and Tarts party... Co-created by Tom Hollander and James Wood, this divine comedy soundtrack also stars Olivia Colman (‘Peep Show’), Miles Jupp (‘Mock the Week’), Lucy Liemann (‘Reggie Perrin’), with guest appearances by Hugh Bonneville and Alexander Armstrong. 1.
