The set for Dave Allen's 1990 series is completely wrong. It looks more like the Dave Allen At Large series. See more »

Nun: That's enough of your happy-clappy love nonsense. We've got this covered. We're in charge now, and we'll make sure you get a rigorous Catholic education.

Little Finger!
8 April 2018 | by alanmarsdenSee all my reviews

I'm sure Dave Allen would have approved of the humour of Aiden "Littlefinger" Gillen playing him, but unfortunately Aiden didn't quite manage to portray his mischievous humour, but then who could? The film showed his childhood influences, but seemed to skip quickly through his early days, not mentioning his early days in Australia and his marriages and children. A good attempt, but could have delved deeper!
