Lots of festive fun
21 April 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The magic is very much here from the Two Ronnies, right at the end of the show's time, this Christmas special frafeatusome great moments, including Pinocchio. There is a performance of Candle in the wind by Elton John, though it isn't live, the but musical performance at the Klondike saloon is fine, and there are a few nice sketches like the Wright's. Best bit though is undoubtedly the Pinocchio sketch which is hilarious and wonderfully dark, Corbett is on top form as the creepy puppet. Sandra Dickinson and Lynda Baron are great fun too. I wouldn't say it's vintage, but still a great special. 7/10
