Rather stupid comedy-drama series from the BBC for younger viewers
25 May 2005 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

The Queen's Nose is a rather silly programme from the BBC and everybody just acts stupid at times.

This is about a group of children that find a coin (a 50p I think) than can grant wishes.

I don't really understand what this is about and where did that coin originate and how come it has special powers?

The BBC have made some good children's programmes over the years but The Queen's Nose has to be one of the worse. Also, what a stupid name for a programme. Whoever thought of The Queens Nose for the title wants their head examining.

Looking at the cast list, I'm rather surprised to see one of Britain's best loved actresses amongst the cast: the late Dame Thora Hird.

To sum up, a rather stupid programme.
