Almost lost the plot

A workplace smoking ban for England and a sensible exemption. I am now wondering if a Patsy or Winston could take the same liberty.

Characters like Absolutely Fabulous's chain-smoking Patsy would not be able smoke on set or on stage if next summer's ban goes ahead as proposed. Theatres also argued they would not be able to portray historic figures like the cigar-smoking Winston Churchill. Exemptions are now being considered where smoking is integral to the plot.
