Ooh Matron!
20 January 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

The Midnight Gang is based on the book by David Walliams. It really sees Walliams going for the Roald Dahl vibe.

Tom gets hit on the head by a cricket ball and finds himself in the Children's Ward at St Hugo's Hospital. The matron dislikes children but she likes shoes. The porter looks scary and Raj the shopkeeper is at the hospital with damaged fingers. Raj has managed to brings his sweeties with him for sale.

The young doctor treating Tom is new and nervous. When the cruel headmaster turns up to take Tom back to school, Tom manipulates his temperature to stay in at the ward.

The reason is that the children in the ward have a Midnight Gang that tries to make dreams come true.

The Midnight Gang has enough anarchic fun and heart that kids will enjoy. The adult actors play it broad apart from Mark Heap, who actually dials it down a tone here.

However Walliams owes Roald Dahl a debt.
