P.C Yet still good
All family enjoyed this
Not strictly accurate...is anything?
Engrossed boys in family and theme inspired debate.
In fact enjoyed it so much we watched it again at later date.
I cannot award 5 stars as could have been less P.C. and been even better.
Weak and politically correct
Stephen Fry appalling in comparison to Iain Cuthbertson in 1971 edition. Generally much less true to the book or the times. Fry appears smarmy and insincere and left this viewer totally unmoved.
Love Alex who played Tom Brown, very moving and likeable lad, and a moving role from Stephen Fry.
Only major down point is that it had no subtitles for deaf people like me.
