The Annual is very good. Glamerous, very well laid out. It has little games like crosswords, wordsearches, Spot the Difference as well. It has a very good descriptions and profiles on every celebrity and Professional dancers, it also asks the professional dances very good questions such as "Your favourite dance". The four judges from last year report back with their descriptions of who was: most consistent, the worst, most improved; and things like that. It has a spread for Camilla Dallerup who left last year, Tom Chambers who won with her, and also a spread for John Sergeant and a Week in the life of SCD. The thing that it really lacks is the description of the dances and it doesn't give any advice on how to dance, it also has a lot of mistakes in, mainly when describing the scores of couples from the past series. One thing which also makes it fall down a little is how a lot of the material is just simply copied from the annual before. Overall, it is very good, a great present, but could be slightly better.
I am a Strictly fan, watching faithfully every week and watching It Takes Two midweek also. This book was great. I couldnt put it down and read it all in one sitting. Great photos and details about all your favourites.
The book gives the detail that one often wants to know about during the course of the programmes especially as one begins to learn more about the competitors. It also highlights details on the specific dances and the difficulties that those learning the routines have to go through. The pictures remind one of the wonderful costumes worn and the "memorable" moments. It is certainly a book to dip into for reminders of all the pleasures the series gave.
This was brought for our daughters as they have been following the programme. They love it and keep looking through it and reading the information on their favourite dancers. Now that the programme has ended it will be their reminder and keep them dancing.
