Did You Know?

Trivia

Many of the young cast had not acted professionally before. For Dane Hughes (John Walker), Bobby McCulloch (Roger Walker), Seren Hawkes (Nancy Blackett) and Hannah Jayne Thorp (Peggy Blackett) this was their first screen outing. See more »

Goofs

Gunnera manicata, known as Brazilian giant-rhubarb, is a native to South America, yet is clearly visible on the island when the children confront the Russian agents. It is highly unlikely to have been planted on a remote island in the middle of the Lake District. See more »

Quotes

Mrs. Jackson: No wonder he's single. Even his own sister finds him impossible. Who knows what's going on in that boat? Something fishy, and I don't mean with nets.

Hmm
3 June 2019 | by kaoxesSee all my reviews

I get that this was apparently adapted for a beloved book and I fully understand that I am not mature in the least and the road that lead me to this title was not, let's say wholesome. That however does not excuse the fact that there isn't a single review pointing out how suggestive the movies name is. There's even a review that complains about the BBC meddling, I mean c'mon, so we're just done with phrasing, right, that's just not a thing anymore?
