This was a charming little story - beautifully acted by Dustin Hoffman and Judi Dench. Just the ticket for New Years evening.

Really enjoyed this, probably the best thing of Christmas and New year TV along with The Wrong Mans!

We've just watched it and I turned to do at the end and said 'awww that was lovely' - really lovely

Inkanta Thu 01-Jan-15 20:32:25

Yes, so uplifting and gorgeous.

NickNackNooToYou Thu 01-Jan-15 20:34:12

Absolutely brilliant, perfect for New Years Day smile

Loved the narration - made the story longer. I was struggling to see how they would make it 90mins as it's quite a short story. I don't usually like James Corden but he was perfect imho.

It was perfect- and I very nearly missed it. Perfect casting- and dd2, who loves tortoises was in her elementgrin

I loved it. Dh was even laughing and I really didn't think it would be his type of thing. Loved James Corden (sp?) telling it.

DD and me both in tears at the end. Absolutely superb.

This is the kind of thing I wanted to watch over xmas.

I never tire of watching Dustin Hoffman

Methe Thu 01-Jan-15 20:45:22

Loved it smile

Take note television producers... This is what we want to watch over christmas!

Starlightbright1 Thu 01-Jan-15 20:48:09

This is one of DS favourite Roald Dahl books so perfect for new years day

EBearhug Thu 01-Jan-15 20:49:45

I loved it, too.

snozzlemaid Thu 01-Jan-15 20:50:46

This was easily the best thing I've watched over the festive period. We all loved it.

Nevergrowingup Thu 01-Jan-15 20:52:01

Perfect. We loved it and we are box-set aficionados . More of the same please.

TenMinutesEarly Thu 01-Jan-15 20:52:06

Fantastic. Dd loved it.

FabulousFudge Thu 01-Jan-15 20:53:07

It was amazing! Beautifully shot and excellent cast.

ThePrincessButtercup Thu 01-Jan-15 20:53:41

It was great! fsmile

esiotrot2015 Thu 01-Jan-15 20:54:27

Can't wait to watch it with kids tomorrow grin

It was really good. We read Esio Trot about a month ago and for once a TV adaptation took a story and rounded it out beautifully. Dustin Hoffman was fantastic.

Bakeoffcakes Thu 01-Jan-15 20:59:15

Glad to hear, I've recorded it for later.

Mrscaindingle Thu 01-Jan-15 21:19:34

Loved it too, didn't have great expectations either. Dustin Hoffman is always fab though and its unlikely Judi would be in anything naff.

Shame there hasn't been more like this on over the holiday.

RudeBarbandCustard Thu 01-Jan-15 21:20:41

It was adorable, I absolutely loved it. Perfectly cast, I agree that James Corden was good even though I usually can't stand him.

Dustin Hoffman and Judi Dench were just gorgeous.

It was visually lovely too, all colour and humour.

Perfect New Year's Day viewing, BBC take note this is just the sort of thing we want!

More, More!

Totally amazing , me DS 15 and DD13 just sat and cried! No one spoke except to roundly slag off Mr Pringle. I think apart from xmas dinner and Dr who it's the I only time we've all been in same room. Wonderful tv.

I too love Dustin Hoffman. Amazing actor, lovely story.
