The stories of Mrs Tiggy Winkle and Jeremy Fisher are once again beautifully depicted here
7 July 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends' was one of my favourites as a kid, and is still one of my favourites now at 24.

This reviewer still loves all of Beatrix Potter's stories to bits, some a little better than others but all of them are timeless, and 'The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends' show complete respect and faithfulness to them with every bit of their charm and memorability.

Even the animation adheres very closely to Potter's illustrations. To me "The Tale of Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny" and "The Tailor of Gloucester" are the best of the series, though Mrs. Tiggy Winkle and Jeremy Fisher are two of Potter's most memorable characters, but 'The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends' is one of those rarities where all the episodes/stories are great.

While I may be criticised for very similar wording in all my reviews of the episodes of this show, it is because the strengths of all the episodes are all the same. "The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy Winkle and Jeremy Fisher" is another beautifully done episode and adaptation of the two stories, with the stories being shown complete respect with clever merging of the stories and nice references to other Beatrix Potter stories.

It's wonderful visually. Not just the animation, which are as said like Potter's illustrations come to life, being colourful, quaintly charming and carefully drawn, but also the charming and exquisitely filmed book-end live action scenes (having the same introduction of "The Tale of Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny", which is my favourite of the introductions) complete with splendid period detail and just as breathtaking scenery.

Music is equally memorable, with a return to the more understated, quaint and melodic incidental music of "The Tale of Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny" and "The Tailor of Gloucester". The music accompanying the introduction and the beautifully sung rendition of "Perfect Day" particularly stand out, and the first half focusing on the Mrs. Tiggy Winkle story has some lovely whimsical and quaint scoring.

Dialogue is beautifully written and again sticks very closely to the writing of the stories of Mrs. Tiggy Winkle and Jeremy Fisher, especially the former, connecting the two stories beautifully. The storytelling never rushes or drags, remarkable for an episode that adapts two stories into one, and is beautifully told, with a cosy and relaxing atmosphere throughout, with all the characters as charming and colourful as in Potter's stories particularly the title characters. One is also fully immersed into the world of Beatrix Potter and her characters.

Voice acting is top-notch, especially from Prunella Scales and Derek Jacobi. Niamh Cusack is cast perfectly as Beatrix Potter.

All in all, beautifully adapted, lovingly made and entertaining. 10/10 Bethany Cox
