Product Description

Jonathan Donald (Lawrence Fox - Lewis) is a fast car salesman who s as happy with his champagne lifestyle as he is with his six figure pay packet. He s invincible in his world there s no problem money can t solve. So when he finds himself in court, awaiting a fine for a drink driving offence, he s not remotely worried. What he isn t expecting is to be facing a disgruntled judge with a flair for creative sentencing in Jonathan s case a 100 hour community service order. And when he turns up at the Moonbeam Club, a drop in centre for young adults with learning disabilities, he certainly isn t expecting to enjoy himself. Jonathan meets Freddie (Jack McMullen - Waterloo Road) at the end of his first day, a hyperactive 20 year old with a wicked sense of humour and a terminal illness. Freddie has grown up in care and has never been part of a real family. His last, impossible wish is to have a traditional family Christmas. In a move that comes as a surprise to everyone, Jonathan devotes his time to making Freddie s final wish come true. With the clock ticking, Jonathan s mad dash to create the perfect Christmas family gathering involves a motley crew of petty criminals, dodgy geezers and possibly the most loving relations Freddie will ever know. This beautifully told story with moments of both joy and sadness is wrapped with good humor and bundles of Christmas spirit. Also starring Tamzin Outhwaite as Patsy Morgan (Paradox; The Fixed; Hotel Babylon) and Sarah Smart as Laura Cooper (Wallander; Casualty; Five Days 1) and directed by David Richards (Foyles War; Wild at Heart).

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'must see' and not just at Christmas time. 13 Oct 2013
By LesJo
This is a moving yet funny drama. The characters are believable, the acting is great and at last it is available on DVD. If it didn't win any awards it certainly should have.

2.0 out of 5 stars Faulty disc 1 Nov 2013
By Steve.
Verified Purchase
I looked forward to watching this and unfortunately the disc was faulty. It froze at 32 minutes, then started skipping forward. I persevered and at 55 minutes in the disc decided to return to the main menu. As other customers have also had this problem I assume the problem is on the Master copy. I was so disappointed although Amazon are excellent with returns and refunds. I will try again after Christmas and hope that the problem has been resolved.Fast Freddie The Widow & Me - Starring Laurence Fox, Tamzin Outhwaite, Jack McMullen and Sarah Smart - As Seen on ITV1 [DVD]

2.0 out of 5 stars Faulty discs. 25 Oct 2013
By J. Cook
Verified Purchase
I haven't seen the film/series yet even though I've received 2 different copies so I can't comment on the actual TV film.

I order DVD's from Amazon all the time with no probs.

I've ordered 2 copies of this film from Amazon now and both discs start freezing in exactly the same place a few scenes in. I'm assuming that as the fault is in the same place on 2 separate discs then the fault is on the master. - ?

I'll await a third copy and see how I get on. Anyone else have a faulty one?

** Ordered a third copy from Sainsburys and that was faulty too!

After reporting the faults with the DVDs to Amazon, they took the film off sale while they investigated it. - It's back on sale now apparently all stock has been returned to the manufacturer and I've been guaranteed the new stock will now work. - I received the following message from an Amazon Customer Services Rep: -

'Please be assured that the old stock we have in our Fulfillment Center has been pulled out and our supplier has confirm that the new stock arrived are defect free. Therefore, the item back on sale offered by Amazon is guaranteed to be working properly'.

I'll order a fourth copy and see how I get on. - I won't hold me breath...

- Just received my fourth copy, supposedly guaranteed to work - it doesn't!!! Useless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Faulty Freddie-Great show, shame about the disc! 18 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
I have seen this a couple of times on TV and really liked it, so wanted a 'proper' copy of it. I got one for Christmas, as a gift, which alas was faulty-the same problem described by previous reviewers of it, the disc froze after about 30 minutes and then started jerking about. Got another copy - alas, same problem. I did ask if the problem had been resolved, before trying again in February and, like a previous reviewer here, was told it had been- I could order with confidence. It wasn't third time lucky for me, the disc was still suffering from the same complaint as the previous two, freezing then jerking about 30 minutes or so in. In the end, I returned the disc and thought I'd wait until nearer Christmas to order it again-maybe the problem will be sorted by then. Shame, because it's a great story, but the dodgy disc problem really needs to be sorted out. If you get one that's working properly hang on to it! So five stars for Freddie as a story - but none for the disc!
