I remember
27 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was repeated again back in 2004/5 and I managed to see it again but recorded over it by mistake.

Would love it if it came out on DVD I always remembered this. Juliet Waley, she was in another programme I remember as a kid, Carries war which I am sure I saw at school too. She Also was in another programme that was released when I was 14 -the Lion Witch and Wardrobe- she played the adult Lucy.

I never realised until I read the other comment that the tall night was Chewie, I think if they ever did a DVD Wordie should stay, always remember Derek Griffiths singing about a dog detective and bill the brickie
