Excellent - For Tiny Tots, But a Cult With Twenty-Somethings!
25 June 2006 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This show was aimed at tiny tots, but became a cult with some teens and twenty-somethings. My peer group and I were eager to be transported to Riddleton End to join Marjorie Dawe, Mossop, Tiddler and Mr Grimley, and thought the show an absolute wow! One of the great things about the show was the studio set, comprising Marjorie's cottage exterior, living room and garden, the well and the exterior of Mr Grimley's house. In the 1980s, location filming became cheaper as cameras became smaller and more portable, and "The Riddlers" was one of the last shows to have such an elaborate studio-bound set depicting both exteriors and interiors.

The puppets were ace - particularly Tiddler, who looked like a cross between Tina Turner and Boy George. Good old Marjorie Dawe, token sensible adult, guided and kept order.

Riddleton End, complete with "Postie", the hedgehog, seemed like a piece of old England and the Riddlers were like folklore characters. It all worked a curious kind of magic on us. Fondly remembered.
