Storyline

The Famous Five are back. Thirty years after the Comic Strip arrived on our screens with their famous Enid Blyton spoof - Five Go Mad in Dorset. These famous children's characters have again been brought back from the past to confront today's modern world. This time they are made to account for their racist and sexist views. But they seem blissfully unrepentant as they gather for a reunion on Dick's birthday in leafy Dorset - still a magical land of rolling hills, woods, ruined castles and of course dodgy villains in big black cars.

A great way to end the series.
23 May 2017 | by (Butt Town) – See all my reviews

It's amazing that 30 years later, these guys were able to come back and do it even better than the original.We found out that The Famous Five have had very interesting lives since the last time they went on an adventure.Alcohol was a big part of it and this adventure starts in a strange alcohol rehab.Then it's typical Famous Five antics with a great twist ending.It was great that they got everyone back for this episode even though it was sad to see how old they have gotten.Rik Mayall has died since this was made and you know the rest will soon follow.It's such a shame that such genius has to go away.If you liked the old Five Go episodes you will like this.
