Intelligent, witty and perfectly pitched
26 January 2006 | by tim-894See all my reviews

I caught one of these little gems - the one about the rat - repeated on TV the other night. Joanna Lumley shows just what an accomplished actor she is in this 10-minute monologue to her bedroom mirror. Very, very funny as she, through her prejudices, preconceptions and reactions to the people she meets and the events of her day, reveals more and more of herself. Beautifully written and deftly directed, this just shows that simplicity, a great script and an extremely able performer can produce a thoroughly absorbing and moving piece of television theatre. The brevity of the production just made me want more. I wish all the episodes were available on DVD.
