A Christmas Carol
A Christmas Carol
by Charles Dickens
Edition: Audio CD

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom Baker Reads A Christmas Carol, 7 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Christmas Carol (Audio CD)
Tom Baker is a great reader for audio cds. He puts a lot of feeling into his voice and can do the different characters very well.
A really excellent adaptation of this classic Charles Dickens story - thoroughly enjoyed it.
Many of the great classics read by such talented people would be a good way to get young people to enjoy these stories. I have listened to many, many audiobooks and the talent of the reader either makes or breaks the appeal of the story. My favourite readers are David Tennant (the best by far), Tom Baker, Stephen Fry and Caroline Lee (the very best of the women readers). Let's have many more great books by these readers please.

This is one of those movies where there are several different stories that connect in someway. The first story with David Tennant was the most enjoyable one (hence the three stars) the rest were ok. One of those shows where you have be to in the right mood to watch.
We were glad that we purchased it as will many David Tennant fans.

David Tennant proves once again what a great versatile actor he is. The film was really interesting and at the end of the first episode you just had to go on to the second one to find out what happened to the characters.
Spies Of Warsaw was set in the period (about two years) before the Second World War started right up to when war was declared. It is about spies from France, Poland, Russia & Germany and how they tried to find out what the Gestapo were up to. I don't want to spoil it by saying anymore for people who will watch it - but a great dvd.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Heartbeat' Chronicles, 30 Dec. 2012

This review is from: "Heartbeat" Chronicles (Hardcover)
We are both great fans of Heartbeat and as we can afford it are trying to purchase all the seasons of this really enjoyable show which only viewed the first few seasons in Australia. The 'Heartbeat' Chronicles was a lovely surprise - an excellent rundown on many of the episodes in the first half of the many seasons that Heartbeat ran. As familiar cast members changed, even though you missed them, the quality of the show remained and one began to like the new characters as they appeared.

The way the book was presented was a clever idea of newspaper clippings found in the archives at the Police Station and it brought back memories of characters long gone from the TV series. A really unique idea that totally works for the fan. The best value book I have purchased from amazon.co.uk.

I did not know this cd existed until I saw it on Amazon. As great fans of the big bands and Danny Kaye in particular, we are very happy with this cd and have played it continuously since it arrived. We have the excellent film from which this is taken - telling the story of Red Nichols (played by Danny Kaye) who started off many of the big band favourites in his band. He quit the music industry due to a family crisis and the rest of the group went on to create their own bands.

This review is from: Seeds Of Deception [DVD] (DVD)
An excellent film based on a true story about the 'Baby Maker' doctor which I think made world news in the early nineties. It showed how he deceived the women he was supposed to be helping and how it had such an impact on their lives. By the same token many of these women would not have a child if it hadn't been for him but his methods did make one cringe.

A really lovely movie, a real tearjerker. This was one of the best roles I have seen Melissa Gilbert in. A very well acted movie with a great storyline. The actor who played the little boy was excellent. What a shame that Melissa Gilbert had all that plastic surgery. I think she looked better before. In this movie she looked like herself unlike in some of the very latest movies where she is almost unrecognisable. This would be my favourite of all her movie roles.

I did not expect much when I purchased this movie (because it starred Melissa Gilbert), but I was very pleasantly surprised. It was a great, unusual story, well acted and a real tearjerker. Melissa Gilbert has been in some way out movies but the roles suit her. A very early role for Hilary Duff as the daughter of a friend.

I only bought this movie because it had Melissa Gilbert in it so if you are a fan you may enjoy it. It really was enjoyable to watch but not a great movie, a bit trashy and not that well acted. I thought it would be better but it did not cost much and now I can see why but I am still glad that I purchased it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Memories of Midnight, 30 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great story with great actors. The reason for the lower rating was that Disc 1 failed at a crucial point in the story so we missed part of it. Now we have to try and track down the book so that we can read what happened in the part that we missed. I do hope that all copies of this DVD do not have the same problem.
