Will definitely check this out on one of the numerous occasions I am watching tomorrow (I feel your pain) - Last thing dd said to me at bed time was "can I watch swashbucklers in the morning please mummy".
At least we now have two new episodes recorded from the weekend. Last week we were watching the same half an episode constantly.
Looking on the bright side - it's one of the few things on cbeebies that doesn't have Justin in!
My 5 yr old quoted from episode 3 at bedtime, something about seasnakes and ropes. He's obsessed! Nice to have something watchable for older cbeebies viewers- we are not quite ready to watch cbbc yet as I have a three yr old too.
