It's dreadful
When you can't find a soup spoon.
And then when you do you can't find your soup spoon fork to pick it up with.
Nor your soup spoon fork tongs.
Or your soup spoon fork tongs tongs.
Or your soup spoon fork tongs tongs server.
And then your soup spoon fork tongs tongs server slice is dirty.

It is rather shit.
Still, Derek Griffiths is in it, who's up there with Brian Cant in terms of childhood nostalgia value.

Oh, I agree a lot
They've thrown out the actors that made it good (particularly anthony Head and whoever plays both versions of Pip). I realise a lot of the radio series would be too expensive/impossible to film, but it could have stayed closer to the original. Having said that, after Catherine Parkinson turned french I've got Major Horn* for her
