Billy's heart isn't it... but still very funny
11 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

Maybe it's his age, maybe it's all the money and houses he keeps talking about, or maybe it's just badly produced, but you really get the feeling Billy Connolly's heart is not in this series.

The clips from the shows are as funny as ever - Billy seems to be getting even better with time in this regard.

But the genuine love of Scotland and Australia that shone through in those previous World Tours is sadly missing. Many of the highlights are dubious, skipped over quickly or seem out of place. Trying to combine 3 very distinctive countries into a unified series was always going to be a challenge though.

The worst moment - Billy's excruciating discussion with the painter of the homeless: "I'm not driven by money or ambition... I do have a castle in Scotland and a mansion in LA though!"
