Show that shaped me: Steven D. Wright on Victoria Wood

As a teenager, seeing the comic perform live at TVC - including four long takes of her most iconic song - set the Kerfuffle managing director's career on track.

By turns affectionate, biting and poignant, this remains one of the finest sketch shows of all time. Meticulously crafted gems include the naïve schoolgirl who decides to swim the Channel, regular updates from shabby soap Acorn Antiques, plus a Coronation Street parody (with Wood as a startlingly accurate Ena Sharples). So it's heartening to see it back in the schedules - part of a season celebrating Wood's career. Tonight we also get dinnerladies, the rarely repeated Mens Sana in Thingummy Doodah (from a 1989 series of one-off sitcoms), plus a 1992 Christmas special.

A night to settle in with a sausage dumpling and a pot of hot coffee as BBC2 offers a much-deserved hooray to Britain's top lady comic. First a 90-minute documentary featuring favoured collaborator Julie Walters and one-time co-star Roger Moore. Then another chance to see her frankly wonderful Christmas special from 2000 (it's been that long), plus a classic episode of dinnerladies to finish. Burp. Pardon. She's a clever old thing.
