I saw this panto version of jack and the beanstalk at Christmas on itv2 in Christmas 2008. I've been going to the pantomime since 2006 and the first panto i saw in Christmas 2006 was jack and the beanstalk starring john barrowman and thought it was fantastic but when i saw this version on itv2 i was rather bored. The reasons i found this version quite poor was because i thought that the costumes,settings and backgrounds were quite cheap looking and did not stand out from the real panto i saw of it in 2006. The reason i never gave it 2 but instead 7 is because i thought that like always Julie Walters gave an hilarious act and made me laugh and laugh so well done Julie your a star and why your not dame Julie is mad! I have seen john barrowman (torchwood),lesley Joseph (birds of a feather) and Chris cascoyne (coronation street) in theatre since 2006 - 2008 and this year 2009 i am hoping to see john again as robin hood in the new theatre!
