Work is a four-letter word for the fine females of Fenner Fashions, who spend more time dodging duties and getting into comic capers than concentrating on the job in hand. Despite union shop steward Paddy and her button-sewing battalion waging a comic war that tries the patience of their employer, Mr. Fenner, somehow they manage to deliver the goods. All 7 episodes from the second series of the '70s revival is now on DVD. EPISODES 1. THE ANNUAL BALL It's the annual Garment Traders' Ball and Mrs Fenner requires some hand-stitching for her new dress. But when Mr. Fenner rips the dress the girls must rush to get it finished by 5pm, only to have the garment sent off with another order. 2. THE LEATHER LINE Paddy and the girls are on the warpath when Mr. Fenner decides to switch to high fashion leather goods. Paddy argues it's against their union agreement so decides to exploit the health hazards associated with stitching leather. 3. STRESS Fenner Fashions is at a point of crisis and there's a bank draft overdue sending Mr. Fenner's stress levels spiraling. When Mrs. Fenner warns the girls he's dangerously ill, Paddy shows concern by ordering the girls to work harder. 4. A BAD PATCH Orders are slim at Fenner Fashions so Mr. Fenner announces to the girls the firm will be forced to close down unless the they take an immediate pay cut whilst he struggles to gain an order. 5. COME BACK, PADDY Paddy feels Mr. Fenner treats her like a piece of furniture, so when she is headhunted for another job, she decides to resign, leaving Mrs. Fenner in charge of the workroom. 6. SELF-DEFENCE Assaults are up in the area surrounding Fenner Fashions so Paddy uses the statistics as a means for insisting Mr. Fenner subsidise self-defence classes for the girls. 7. FENNER'S FOLLY Mr. Fenner offers the girls a lucrative bonus rate for a new line of garments when a gorgeous buyer for a Chelsea boutique places a large order. But when he gets carried away and offers the dresses at a loss, it's up to Paddy to save him from his stupidity.
