8 August 2001 | by djtomlinSee all my reviews

Once again Pen Keith has made a fab job in this well writen show.The Man from the Champions could do with some if his special powers in this show to help Pen Out.The Girl who players Georgina is just so funny with her remarks and Pen has done it again.
