Set entirely in the canteen of HWD Components, a fictional factory in Manchester. The inner lives and social interactions of the mostly female, mostly middle-aged staff are vividly and amusingly depicted. Bren tries to maintain order among the chaos, while dealing with her unspoken love for the canteen supervisor, sex-obsessed cancer sufferer Tony.
Julia Mary "Julie" Walters, CBE (born February 22, 1950) is an English actress and writer. ...
Bren's selfish and manipulative mother, who had Bren taken into care as a child because she was cramping her style.
She sometimes seems to forget that Bren is her daughter. Whenever she pays Bren a visit, it's usually because she wants money or a favour.
She appears to live in a fantasy world where she is a close friend (and usually a lover) of the rich and famous, but in reality is a down-and-out who lives in a caravan behind a petrol station.
In the second series, she embarks on an affair with an Asian man and claims to be pregnant with his child. In the final episode, she dies off-screen.
It is revealed that her real name is also Brenda Furlong.
