[Mr Robbins is serving a meal to Tom]
Tom Fitzhenry: What's Mrs Robbins conjoured up for us today?
Mr. Robbins: I can't be definite, sir. It may be a form of stew.
[shot of a congealed mess on a plate]
Tom Fitzhenry: Ah yes, I've had this before. It's actually less intimidating than it looks.

Highly enjoyable
13 April 2013 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I thought that this might be part of a serial, or series when I hired it. Turns out I was right, but not how I had imagined it. This is short film, delightful and highly entertaining. The crux of the matter is the awkwardness of the hero due to his disfigurement, which one would have thought would have been brought before medical experts when he was a child, however that would have spoiled the story. It is funny, charming and basically believable although limited by the budget. Martin Clunes has the most incredible speaking voice - I think he could read a train timetable and be interesting. However, his character is less than adorable, given that he is spoiled and temperamental. Still, apparently all that vanishes with l o v e. The rest of the cast are just as enjoyable and most are old friends of TV viewers. Excellent casting and good value.
