Anyone watch it? Caught it by accident whilst flicking around and it was cracking!

Worth a look at on catch up if you missed it.

Was very good. Nice to have an orginal storyline too.

It's one of my favourites the kids are marvellous!

Watched this today. What a lovely film. Billy Connolly was fantastic, as were the children. I see it was penned by one of the writers of Outnumbered, and interestingly I think the children were ad libbing.

Thought this was the best thing I've seen in a long time

I saw it by accident last night too

Really enjoyed it!

It was very good. Kids were very touching and natural.
Made a change from the usual rom com type films.

Did not see any trailers for it though, suprising really, i thought it was one of the best things on over the Christmas period .

The children were absolutely fabulous - i am definitely up for a Viking funeral 😆

Watched it last night took a bit of a dark twist grin but we loved it Billy Connoly was wonderful in it and the children were hilarious and obviously the actors bounced off the adlibbing . Brittish film season has been great on bbc2 this year

Think the lady in the van is on soon maybe friday?

We caught it by accident too - missed the first 20 minutes. It was so good. Funny, touching & moving.

Toooldtobearsed Mon 02-Jan-17 18:12:29

Oh @MrsJayy, you have missed it!

It was on following a programme featuring Alan Bennett - both were brilliant! DH wants to be AB 😄

MrsJayy Mon 02-Jan-17 18:42:15

Ach no will see if I can get it on iPlayer thanks I would have been looking for it.

Julius02 Mon 02-Jan-17 19:08:18

I turned over and it was on. I loved it - great film and beautiful scenery

MrsJayy Mon 02-Jan-17 19:22:15

Diana Rigg used to live in that house when she was lady Stirling Dh has fixed a gas leak in it Dh bored us with that fact last night just thought I'd share grin

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Mon 02-Jan-17 19:27:02

Oh good Lord, watching it now and having a real cry!

Mrs Jayy lady in the van on last week. My other favourite film of Christmas (along with Ethel and Ernest and What we did on our holiday).Really good.

I'm so pleased i saw this - I thought the children were so good. (and Billy Connolly too).

What a lovely film. Funny and touching.

ClaraLane Mon 02-Jan-17 22:07:53

We watched it on Netflix about a year ago and loved it, might need to watch it again one night this week I think!

EllaHen Mon 02-Jan-17 22:15:02

What an utter, utter gem of a film. smile

Autumnchill Mon 02-Jan-17 22:18:26

Pleased I recorded it. Will watch it tomorrow night smile

Autumnchill Tue 03-Jan-17 19:46:18

Bloody brilliant! This should have been on Christmas night on BBC1 and not tucked away on BBC2

Loved it.billy connelly was amazing, I'm not a huge fan of his comedy but his acting is great in everything I've seen.i particularly love Mrs brown.
I sobbed away when they lit the viking raft.
