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.
Stan is the uptight handyman of the factory, who lives with his father.
He spends his days cleaning bins and grumbling. He is also particularly close to Bren as she seems to be the only one who knows how to successfully handle his moods.
After his father's death he decides to get his life going again, embarking on a brief relationship with a nurse before dating, and ultimately proposing to his colleague Jean, which she accepts in the final episode.
He keeps a toupee for special occasions (such as the royal visit) and holidays.
