Don't take this one too seriously. If you watch it for the lighthearted romp that it is, you'll enjoy it much more.
Let's begin with the actress herself. She's very much a pantomime dame: laying it on as thick as it comes and splitting the house into those who want her to stay and those who can't wait for her to leave. Rather predictably, it's Esther and Olivia who want her out, while the others hang off her every word.
Equally predictably, our actress turns out to be something of a fraud who realises the key to improving her life is to be more like the Waltons. Well, at least she's in good company.
Starstruck John-boy is hilarious. Nice work, Mr Thomas! Loved seeing him after his fight with the chauffeur as well. For once, the make-up was spot on.
I wouldn't want too many episodes like this, but as a one-off it's great fun. Sit back and enjoy!
