Storyline

Morecambe FM disc jockey Lewis Loud is thrilled to be appearing in his first pantomime 'Dick Whittington' opposite glamorous soap star Tamsin,with whom he starts an affair though his flair for improvisation sets him against the conservative director Francis and ambitious producer Di,who is pushing her reluctant daughter Chantelle. Other cast members are discontented - RADA-trained Johnny feels it is a come-down to be playing the dame whilst pint-sized Greg is disappointed to be the non-speaking cat rather than one of the seven dwarfs that he normally plays. Lewis also has his young son Paul dumped on him when his ex-wife chooses to go abroad with her new man. Crisis occurs when Tamsin pulls out of the show to enter a TV reality contest and asks Lewis to go with her. But Lewis will not disappoint his son or his fellow performers and,ill-assorted as they may be,they are all professionals and they pull together to ensure the success of the panto.

Trivia

Although the external shots of the characters looking at the theatre billboard were filmed at The Grand Theatre Lancaster (where the film is set) the front view shown is of an entirely different venue - the Coronation Theatre in Ulverston, which has a more imposing frontage. A newly installed statue erected to the Cumbrian town's most famous son - Stan Laurel, along with his comedy partner Oliver Hardy, is clearly visible in several scenes. See more »

Good Christmas fun
19 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I give ITV a lot of credit for producing something that can be classed as genuine 'family entertainment' over the Christmas period and although 'Panto!' isn't perfect it does manage to be easy going and light hearted and that's what you want at Christmas.

John Bishop is a comedian who divides opinion but I think he gives a good performance in the lead role and we are prepared to go with him, regardless of how mad things get.

The supporting cast are what steal it though with Samantha Sparo and Mark Benton being the big names though honourable mention must go to Chesney Hawkes who is the butt of many jokes throughout the piece.

Overall a good bit of light hearted fun. Lets hope ITV can produce something of a similar ilk this Christmas.
