Great Performance of a very Funy Panto
22 December 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent bit of Pantomime, especially with the now defunct 'Hearsay', but the acting and story absolutely comical and very well presented.

Simon Nye's take on this classic children's tale is great and I would recommend looking at other Pantomimes he has revamped and added great celebrity performances from the likes of Harry Hill, Sanjeev Baskar, James Fleet, Julian Clary and Paul Merton.

This is an excellent evening of television viewing and should not be missed as it will bring a smile and a laugh to all the family.

I will keep an eye out for any other pieces this man has written.
