hilarious gaffe!
1 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I didn't see all of the episodes but then one's I saw were fun.

One of the funniest scenes was probably not intentional. In the Miller's Tale, where Nick is getting shaved by Danny the shaving foam changed position a couple of times... reappearing after he's been shaved.

I never noticed it until my students were rolling around in fits.

Nice acting and a jolly romp. Billie Piper actually does well surrounded by guys like James Nesbitt and Dennis Waterman. I believe it gave her a new break in her career.

A fun updating but I felt the fart could have been more impressive!
