VIDEO REVIEW - Patient: Toad (Series 2, Episode 6)
December 8, 2019
The 52nd of my video reviews dedicated to the making of Cosgrove Hall's film and series of 'The Wind in the Willows', featuring 'picture in picture' and the odd 'behind the scenes' image too, including archival photos of existing costumes and props and original drawings! This one is for Episode 6 from Series 2, 'Patient: Toad' (originally transmitted in the UK on 4th February 1986). It was originally released a couple of times on VHS in the UK, and then on DVD in 2003 and 2007/8. The entire script can be read on-screen as you watch, so look our for any differences, including a deleted song.
This episode is very apt for early Winter 2019 and reviews of the series continue as we get into the festive spirit with 'The Yuletide Entertainment' on Sunday 15th December 2019.
All 52 episodes have been sorted into a special 'seasonal' order. The remaining 13 'bonus' episodes (Series 5/the 'Oh! Mr Toad!' spin-off episodes) are being reviewed, one by one, as 'additions' every 4 weeks. Comments very welcome. :)
