Childhood Favourite
10 March 2006 | by (Brisbane, QLD) – See all my reviews

You know those shows you watched as a kid but forget about until something triggers a memory... I used to tune in to watch Educating Marmalade every Sunday morning on ABC TV (AU) in the early 80's. Such a rebellious delightfully wicked character could only be loved by kids who would love to be able to follow in her shoes.

I hope this gets a release on DVD one day soon, as it would be nice to be able to properly return down memory lane. It was quite a shock to discover that Charlotte Coleman was the quirky sidekick from Four Weddings & a Funeral... and even more of a shock to read she died from an asthma attack a few years ago.

Here's to a great show.
