Argh. The story about Dame Diana seems to be behind a paywall.

Did anyone watch A Christmas carol goes wrong? Diana was the narrator, though she was heard more than seen. What did you all think Question I was a bit disappointed after the brilliance of Peter Pan goes wrong last year. This type of thing, which is more or less sending up the perils of amateur dramatics, only works when it is itself performed on stage in front of a live audience, which Peter Pan was last year. Subsequently, the narrator of that one, David Suchet, had a much more involved role. This year's pre-recorded offering was on a film set rather than a stage, and was far too slick and contrived.

Yeah, it sadly didn't work as well as Peter Pan Goes Wrong.

It was pretty much supposed to be an as-live production but it was an awkward conceit to pull off. It still had some laugh out loud moments as they're very good with the physical comedy.

Diana running down Derek Jacobi did amuse though.

I did find the running gag with the young actor who didn't know his lines, and reading them from various part of the set, quite amusing. This should really have been on a stage though. They are a very inventive team though, so hopefully they'll do more stuff in the future.
