This show is usually on Children's BBC in the morning in Britain, and, considering most of the garbage that's shown these days, it should be shown later when more people can see it. The cast are adequate for their given roles, the stories admittedly, are well written and know what buttons to push, in the right order, delivering many clever twists and turns. But one person sticks out in this: Wayne's mother, Rainee Skinner.
In my mind, she is one of the most beautiful, attractive actresses I have seen on a children's programme. She is so cool as well, and sort of anchors the show in realism whereas without her it would lose it's reality. I mean, in the first episode, the way she turns the rules of the manifesto inside out is extremely devious, as it seems to be so well written and infallible, yet she finds holes and uses them to her advantage.
Rainee should be on more programmes. If I were to make films, I would write parts for her and Nancy Allen straight away.
If anyone has info on her, e-mail me?
