My fav Christmas TV special!
28 May 2004 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

I totally LOVE this story. Tommy Steele has a wonderful bright personality, and this role really showcases it. I love the songs in this, especially the one sung by the "perfect" dolls, and the stage number hosted by the ventriloquist dummy.

I also love the way that the various elements of the story really balance each other out. The comedy isn't too wacky, the romantic angle isn't TOO sappy, the action and adventure is balanced by the warmth and humour.

This is really top class fantasy storytelling for the child in all of us. I just wish there were more TV specials in this class.
