Brilliant fun and highly amusing!
26 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

I just watched a repeat of this programme on UK drama. Alright, it might not have been of the highest standard in the world but it was very funny and had several big laughs in it. I have never laughed so much as when the actress playing Princess Diana put two large crisps up to her ears pretending to be Prince Charles! Don't watch this expecting something of 'Lord of the Rings' or 'Green Mile' standard but if you have some spare time and just want a bit of a laugh, watch this and just enjoy it! Deserves 10/10 for originality and good humour!
