great British/ Canadian series
9 December 2001 | by (salford manchester, england) – See all my reviews

a young boy called Rodger is convinced that he is actually a rat and lives down a sewer,he remembers being at the palace as a footman and seeing a lovely young girl called Lady Aurelia who captures the heart of the prince. But Rodger remembers her as being a Servant girl called Mary Jane who is kind to him when he was a rat. Rodger lives with an Irish couple Mrs Jones(Brenda fricker) Edward Fox is great as well in the series as some gentleman who lives at the palace, young Rodger eats anything he can lay his hands on chairs, tables and even pencils, the mini series is great and children will love its a nice Sunday tea time slot here in the U.K it is made jointly with the BBC and Canada. the title is called When I was a Rat, so anyone who loves dramas or fairly tales this is one for you.
