Scottishly Brilliant
26 August 2003 | by (Wirral) – See all my reviews

I remember this gem from when it was first aired, I was about 12 years old.... brilliantly funny & clever, and now available on DVD !!!!!

Comical, but oh so simple... the only draw back being is that they only made 6 episodes ! Fantastic !
