Roger & The Rottentrolls

Show Summary

"Somewhere in England is a very strange valley where the rocks are all slightly mad. A thousand years ago, Merlin was trying to create a ski resort for King Arthur, when he picked up some strange Norweigan trolls in a snow cloud. "Oh, those rotten trolls have messed it all up!", he shouted. From that day on, they waited for their mystical leader whose name they found carved in a rock - "Roger Was Ere". So one day, when Roger Becket from Cowgill stopped at the bottom of the valley and shouted "Roger Was Here" - from that moment on, he was King of the Rottentrolls!" This ITV series follows the adventures of 10 3/4 year old Roger Beckett, and his adventures in Troller's Ghyll as King of the Rottentrolls. Coronated after crashing his bike in the vally, Roger rules over the Rottentrolls, teaching them about things like sport and poletics, and learning a few lessons himself in return.
