Let's have a proper review - AWESOME
24 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My 8/10 rating goes purely for the earlier series, with Harmony and Melody, going up to the time when they were staying on their relative's boat.

All series since then have gone down, mainly because of the absence of Harmony, and also because they decided to have a full cast of little kids with the coin.

For years we had Harmony as the owner of the 50p coin. As a child, I loved to watch The Queen's Nose - it was one of my favourite programmes, and hearing the theme music now brings back a whole host of memories for me =]

It had charm and sophistication, unlike its later series, and great contrast between the two very different sisters, Harmony and Melody.

I am also fond of it for my earliest memories of Liz Smith =]

I would agree with those of you who dismiss this programme as a complete waste of time, if you have only seen the more recent series.

How about you write to CBBC asking for re-runs of the earlier editions?

There's nothing wrong with that =]]
