The choice of Liza Tarbuck and James Nesbitt as the voices of Farmer Fi and farmhand Matt may sound a little odd to a grown-up audience, but they approach their task with such gusto that smaller viewers will not help but get caught up in it all. The stories are simple and easy to follow and will bear the inevitable repeated viewing. Old hands may prefer the more traditional style of animation but it can't be denied that Tractor Tom has a bright, attractive look to it and younger children will find much to keep them amused even if they do not understand the plots. As seems to be standard these days, the programme comes with an accompanying range of merchandise; but it is an enjoyable, engaging series and should keep the small ones entertained. --Phil Udell --This text refers to the DVD edition.
