All eight episodes of the brilliantly-observed original BBC TV comedy series. When initially aired on BBC3, "The Smoking Room" met with critical and popular acclaim. Now, for the first time on audio, are all eight episodes, complete and uncut. In the world of work, there is only one place where seniority means nothing and shop talk is banned - the smoking room. Here you'll find divorcee Lilian, enjoying her new freedom; bone idle Robin, dreaming his life away as he waits for a certain someone; freeloading Annie, an entirely self-centred emotional wreck; paranoid Barry, hiding behind his crossword; deathly boring Heidi; prim Janet, who is keen to fit in but has a very short temper; gruff, foul-mouthed, Len; no nonsense Sally - the lone voice of reason; and Clint, who is in a world of his own. Attempting to deal with the lot of them is their socially inept boss, Sharon. With nothing in common but their nicotine habit, this oddly assorted bunch pass the time discussing every topic under the sun. From "The Bible Code" to kinky sex, and from the possible allergic properties of Jammy Dodgers to the plight of conjoined twins, there's only one topic that's out of bounds.
So, remember: no shop talk!show more
