The Smoking Room (2004)

The Smoking Room

2004-2005

Writer Brian Dooley has created a rich pageant of life in the tiny Petri dish of the Smoking Room.

Big on witty dialogue, short on plot, the Smoking Room ran for two series and a Christmas special. It was understated and gentle, but not in a mumsy billowy way – the show definitely had edges. And then sometimes it went beyond them.
