Publisher's Summary

In the world of work, there is one place where seniority means nothing, where shoptalk is banned, and where the persecuted minority gather regularly to discuss every subject under the sun: the smoking room.

Set entirely in the smoking room of a large company, this eight-part comedy series explores the personal foibles and suppressed longings of an oddly assorted bunch of characters. These individuals wouldn't normally even socialise together, but their shared love of nicotine provides a tenuous link between them all.

There's the smoking-room fixture with a passion for the postboy; the grouchy security guard; the thick-skinned office Romeo; the terminally paranoiac; the divorcee enjoying a new adolescence; an entirely self-centered emotional wreck; the boss who wants to be popular; and the voice of reason among all the madness.

A Forgotten Gem

Loved this show but I could never find it in the US. I wish they would release the second season as an audiobook.

Better on TV

This show when it was on BBC3 was brilliant, I really loved it. But the audio production is just the TV recording, and it just doesn't work at all. There are long pauses that in the TV show you can see the reason for, but obviously those subtleties are lost in an audio production. I'd recommend it to anyone on DVD but not as an audiobook.

Season two needed

The gaps when no one is speaking need to be shortened and season two is needed. Otherwise I liked it. Wish there was more.
