Just awful
1 January 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

You can imagine the BBC big-wigs planning this, let's take a star from each of the following hit shows - The Fast Show, Blackadder and Hi-de-Hi. Add the sister of a movie star, a foreigner with a comedy eastern European accent and Amanda Holden, clearly one of the current "flavours of the month" from Britain's got Talent and the celebrity magazines and we should have a massive hit......

Well, what a disaster: tired flat jokes, a wooden and unfunny performance from Holden and predictable writing Tony Robinson is in some sort of catatonic trance throughout each episode. He's clearly there in body, but his eyes tell you he'd rather be in a trench talking about pottery.

If this programme was a horse, it would have been taken out and shot. It is a prime example of being less than the sum of it's parts.
