Victoria Wood: Only too soon


The toll is endless. 2016 had now claimed Victoria Wood, comedian, actress, writer and a bloody comic genius. Only two years older than me. I remember her from That’s Life, about which I wasn’t all that impressed, but her genius caught my eye from the ITV Sunday Night Play, Talent, where she first teamed up with Julie Walters. Victoria Wood as seen on TV was mandatory watching: so many Friday nights curled up with my then beloved both crying with laughter, and getting to see her live on stage at the Palace Theatre, Manchester.

Crying again now. Not with laughter.
