Rat’s tale to thrill fam­ily

Irish Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

He’s a ro­dent rob­ber with a sweet tooth and The High­way Rat looks set to steal the show for BBC1 this Christ­mas. The half-hour an­i­mated spe­cial, based on Ju­lia Don­ald­son’s much-loved chil­dren’s book, is the en­chant­ing tale of a Dick Turpin-style road ban­dit out to get his paws on other an­i­mals’ buns, bis­cuits and choco­late. With a stel­lar cast, in­clud­ing for­mer Doc­tor Who star David Ten­nant in the ti­tle role and co­me­dian Rob Bry­don as the nar­ra­tor, this charm­ing story prom­ises to be swashbuckling en­ter­tain­ment for the whole fam­ily this fes­tive sea­son.
