What was the fuss about?
17 April 2005 | by (Scarborough, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I thought that this was a brilliantly entertaining critique which was far from being the blasphemous obscenity which many organisations would have us believe. The performances were electric, especially Alison Jiear and David Bedella who were simply stunning in the way they twisted the audience from one emotion to the other. Their characters were a heady mix of comedy and pathos.

I am glad the BBC did not cave and showed this as I think this is a clear example of where people pre-judge an issue and make decisions for the masses on an uninformed premise. I'm an adult and I am happy to to make up my own mind!
