Wonderful

It makes a change to have a drama that isn't about failed relationships which seems to clog up TV these days. OK so there are a few plot holes but what a great idea. Shirley Henderson plays the part brilliantly. It is stretching it a bit for her to play an 11 year old, but it does work. Elizabeth Berrington is great as Ffion. Overall the whole cast were wonderful, the writing very funny and the director held it all together nicely without getting too silly. The previous reviewer obviously does not know the lengths that some people go to in order to get their kids in the "right" school, including deliberately moving nearer. This actual scenario did happen in Amereica recently. Overall great fun and a breathe of fresh air.

Funny ITV comedy drama

I decided to watch this programme when I saw a trailer for it on ITV as it looked fairly amusing and starred Shirley Henderson who has been great in everything I've seen her in. When Alice and David move to a gated community in South London they learn that getting their daughter into the high flying private school might be a bit harder then just paying the fees. Their new friends tell them that the school is heavily over subscribed and only those who pass a challenging entrance exam which may be a problem for daughter Molly who hasn't had chance to revise and doesn't do well in exams. The couple hatch what they think will be the ideal solution; Alice will take the exam instead. This leads to some amusement as thirty five year old Alice tries to dress in a way that will enable her to pass for eleven. I found the story to be fairly funny and the cast all played their parts well, especially the always excellent Shirley Henderson as Alice. While I think it was pushing it a bit to think she could pass for eleven I don't think any adult actress could, it might have been more plausible if she was trying to be a teenager. The other characters were good although each of the families seemed to consist of mothers desperate to get their children into the top school and fathers who seemed to be rather more relaxed about it. I've limited spoilers to things that are mentioned in the TV guide write up for the first episode and not mentioned part two at all so as not spoil it for those who haven't seen it yet. It was good to see ITV making a decent comedy drama. I expect this will get repeated on ITV's digital stations, if it does it is well worth watching.

What a crock

Seriously, is this British TV? I've almost never seen anything as stupid. Well I must admit I did laugh once, but it got lost in the huge amount of silly dribble that this show was. Who on earth would believe her to be 11 years old? She looks every bit 30+ no matter what clothes she puts on. Trying to pull one over on the audience just don't sit well. The only endearing factor about this show is the poor husband, having to deal with such a nervous, compulsive, stupid wife. And He's really doing his best. But no one can live with a partner like that forever. I was just hoping for a quick divorce in the 1st episode and get it over with. Pjukable.
