It's Harry's third year at Hogwarts; not only does he have a new "Defense Against the Dark Arts" teacher, but there is also trouble brewing. Convicted murderer Sirius Black has escaped the Wizards' Prison and is coming after Harry.
To celebrate her 80th birthday, the Queen is holding a children's party in the grounds of Buckingham Palace. She has invited many classic characters from British children's literature. But when the baddies, led by Cruella de Vil, discover that they have not been invited, they steal the Queen's handbag containing her spectacles and the text of her speech; without it, the Queen will not be able to make a speech at the party. Can the goodies find the handbag in time?Written by
You don't have to be of the Harry Potter generation to enjoy this show. If you've ever been a kid and read books you'd enjoy this show. I'd never imagined Jonathan Ross as Sir Topham Hatt but you can see the Blue Peter presenters as the Famous Five. It was a good performance all round. If I had been writing the script I would have had Martin Clunes saying when he came on as PC Plod "right, no behaving badly". Ronnie Corbett was marvellous in it. The Queen might well appoint him official Walker of Corgis. Sanjev Bhashkar is no-one's idea of Robin Hood but he was good. At the end HM said she was glad to have her handbag back. One thing, though, couldn't she have looked like she was enjoying the show? Her face was like fizz when you saw her in the Royal Box while watching the show although she may have been having to put up with a whole lot of snide comments on the show by the Duke of Edinburgh. The Harry Potter section was the highlight of the show for many. Every time you see Messrs Radcliffe and Grint and Miss Watson they've grown. I don't think it will be long until Miss Watson is competing for Keira Knightley's roles. Everybody did very well and it was a great feel good show.
