Wonderful nostalgia
13 January 2012 | by Bernie-56See all my reviews

A lovely adaptation of J.B. Priestley's novel of the same name. In keeping with the show biz theme it contains musical interludes but I wouldn't go as far as calling it a musical.

If you're a fan of quality light entertainment from the UK you'll enjoy this.

There are, as usual in British drama, some fine cameo performances. It was delightful to see Judith Cornwall as the prim-and-proper Miss Trant. What a contrast to her later performance as Daisy in 'Keeping Up Appearances'.

I note US viewers have rated it much lower than UK/Commonwealth viewers making the overall rating quite low. This is understandable as this is not the type of show that would have any appeal for Americans. The humour is too subtle and most of the characters are elderly. When originally broadcast it rated highly in the UK and Australia.

Available on DVD (3 CD set) from Amazon UK at an excellent price.
