    Snowman walked like an chirpy cockney barrow boy and the main theme tune should be called Cycling in The Air. James and The Snowman spent an embarrassing amount of time suspended on wires cycling for dear life. A lack lustre show with poor performance skills. A great shame that iconic scenes were ruined by a lack of imagination and what looks like a very small budget. The Snowman was wearing cheap onesie a few sizes too big. And what on earth is going on with his face? Please, please have re think. And cut the dancing scenes with what looked like Jack Frost. No place for them in the show.
