A Children's Programme Which Can Be Enjoyed By All Ages!
29 June 2002 | by (Cheshunt, Herts, England) – See all my reviews

This series is really very good. Imogen Stubbs, Duncan Duff, Kelly Salmon and Matt Adams make up an excellent cast who make this show, obviously aimed for children, enjoyable not just for them but for adults too. Stubbs and Duff play parents Sarah and Geoffrey Spiller, and the excellent Salmon and Adams play their children, Kate and Simon. Seemingly an ordinary family, an evening changes all that when Sarah and Geoffrey are hypnotised into behaving like children at their very worst! Through the series the spell remains, and as the family ponder what it could be that triggers these periods of becoming children, much embarrassment is caused to Kate and Simon, and, when informed of their antics, their parents too. The spell would often kick in at the worst of times, such as when Dr Geoffrey had to deliver a baby, but was reversed back to childhood and Kate and Simon had to take over. Stubbs and Duff appear to revel in the opportunity to perform as petty, squabbling, messy children always trying to get their own way. Whilst Salmon and Adams are forced to take roles of maturity and to 'parent' their parents, and they show what fine, accomplished young actors they are. Certainly a very entertaining show, often quite funny, well-written, and very well performed. They found the perfect balance appointing this cast, and it looks as though they would have had a lot of fun making this series!
