Grumpy Old Women is a British television series, continuing in the same vein as its predecessor, Grumpy Old Men. Both programmes are shown on BBC Two. The first two series were narrated by Alison Steadman, and the third by Judith Holder (who is the 'grumpy old woman' in the clips). The show started as a special one-off Christmas special; however, because of its popularity, it spawned a regular series, a book and stage show.
Runtime: 30 minutes
