Loved those dinosaurs

I really didn't expect to fall in love with the dinosaurs.  I didn't expect to become so engrossed that I would call out "watch out" when it appeared Andrew was in danger.  I didn't expect to be so into the show that I would forget that I'd known Andrew, the narrator of Walking with Dinosaurs, all his life and see him only as the palaeontologist, Huxley.  No wonder children love the show so much!  The little girl in the seat in front of me had to crawl onto her father's lap and wrap her arms around his neck for comfort a couple of times.  And a little boy somewhere behind us must have asked at least a hundred questions to a very patient father.  I wasn't the only one who was completely engaged. 


Remember The Walking with Dinosaurs TV series?  That showed us dinosaurs as if they were alive and in their natural environment but in this show I was there all those millions of years ago, walking amongst them.  I gasped and wanted to hide a couple of times.  I almost had a tear in my eye when one of them was injured in a battle and joined the others in the theatre who ohhed and ahhed when a giant mother and her babe shared a moment.

Thanks so much, Andrew, for the tickets centre front, just a few rows back from the pre-historic action.
