One of my many childhood favourites
12 June 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I do admit I have a thing for nostalgia, and I loved Paddington when I was a kid. At 18, I still love it now, it is absolutely wonderful. And I agree with the previous reviewer, it is better than the children's shows of today, which are either bad or once good shows now mediocre. I didn't feel there was a wasted moment watching Paddington, it was whimsical, charming and funny. I always loved the characters, cute and endearing Paddington, Mr and Mrs Brown and the hilarious Mr.Curry("BEAR!"). The look of the series is superb, and the music is excellent. I also loved the story lines and Paddington's situations and the narration by the wonderful Michael Hordern. There are so many things to like about Paddington, it is a wonderful show. 10/10 Bethany Cox
