Storyline

One of three hour long dramas that Rik Mayall did for ITV in the summer of 1993. Dancing Queen concerns Neil who is at his batchelor party. A stripper called Pandora performs her dance and Neil's mates load him on a train as a last gag. Neil awakes on the train, Pandora's there and at the stop where his mates are to pick him up, the train doesn't stop. Neil and Pandora walk around one of Northern England's premier seaside towns as he frets over the utter chaos his marriage day has turned out to be and tries to get back. All the while, Pandora is going on carnival rides and just generally moping around listening to Abba's Dancing Queen. Written by Richard John <rjohn@canoe.ca>

Had me in tears and still holds charm years later. Story line is good and this could've been extended to a cult classic film
