In the five years since Victoria Wood's death, one great sadness has been the realisation that we will never again be surprised by new material from her. But as part of the research for Let's Do It, the critically acclaimed Sunday Times bestseller, her official biographer Jasper Rees uncovered a treasure chest of unseen work. From her first piece of comic prose, for the school magazine, through to material written for the great TV shows of her maturity, this joyful hoard of unreleased material spans nearly half a century.

Victoria Wood: Unseen on TV is a unique and intimate insight into the working of an irreplaceable genius of comedy. From the first to the last, here are sketches, songs and stand-up monologues that no one else could have written, which will make you laugh in the way that only she could.

'He was a lovely man he had a lovely gap between his two front teeth. I specially noticed it cos he had a mushy pea stuck in it. He said can I take you home I said hang on I haven't finished my Tizer. So, we get home he says can I come in for a coffee.
I said I haven't got any coffee but you can come in for a Horlicks if you don't mind sucking your own lumps.'

Praise for Let's Do It:

'Rees pulls off the trick of writing a brilliant tribute while also - somehow, almost - bringing Victoria Wood back to life in all her complicated glory.' Guardian

'An immersive, authoritative book' Spectator'Impeccable' Daily Telegraph'A must-read' Daily Mirror

'A joy' Daily Mail
