Nanny Knows Best!
24 November 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

The Goodies are out of work, with no offers of employment forthcoming. Then a creepy elderly couple hires them to act as nanny ( Tim ), cook ( Bill ), and gardener ( Graeme ) for one day. They entrust the Goodies with the responsibility of caring for Cecily, their niece. Cecily claims to be the heir to a vast family fortune her aunt and uncle are determined to possess. Even if it means resorting to murder...

The only 'Goodies' episode to give me nightmares ( Tim wasn't alone in having hysterics on seeing Cecily's last nanny reduced to a grinning skeleton in a rocking chair. Not even 'Psycho' had that effect on me. ). This is a delightfully demented episode, containing some terrific film sequences, most notably Graeme in the garden ( no pun intended! ), and Tim taking Cecily out to play.

Ann Way was 'Mrs.Hall' in the 'Fawlty Towers' classic 'Gourmet Night', while Jill Riddick, who plays 'Cecily', was familiar to viewers as Wendy Craig's daughter 'Amanda' in 'Not In Front Of The Children'.

Funniest moment - Tim running with a kite, and falling in the river!
