Unusual, an understatement; quirky, closer description; eccentric, certainly departing the norm – that is my description of my road trip with through Incredible Britain. No funnier, more interesting driver could I ever find, and no more interesting tour could I ever experience.
I truly enjoyed my journey with Robbie Coltrane (better known to you perhaps as TV’s Cracker or movies Hagrid) through colorful, offbeat roads less traveled. I don’t know what I enjoyed more his presence and humor or the majestic views and spectacular scenery of England and Scotland’s countryside. I expected to see traditional, ex. Stratford-on-Avon Shakespeare. It didn’t happen. What happened instead was drag racing.
Don’t expect to see the boring same old stuff on Robbie Coltrane: Incredible Britain. Instead expect the unexpected. Traveling roads less taken shows firetruck wheelies, a shoe museum, the world’s largest silo, a convent b&b, a wingwalker, a cleric who beats to a different drum, rugby with a keg, tiddlywinks, a scarecrow convention, a dock pudding contest, nuclear towers crashing down, a ghost hunt and more.
I have wanted to visit the British Isles all my life. I lived vicariously when my 12-year-old daughter saved enough to book her own class trip there. I promised myself someday. Unfortunately, almost a half-century later, responsibilities and budget still prohibit. But, hey, a girl can dream, can’t she? Or perhaps settle for some sort of virtual reality like a 137 minute DVD with splendid areal shots that capture unique. DVD special features include a biography of Robbie Coltrane and a fun facts map.
You don’t have to be a traveler to enjoy this travel show. Coltrane’s British humor shines as do the landscapes. Robbie Coltrane: Incredible Britain is available at many retailers as well as online. Its SMRP is $29.99.
Filmmakers, four years have passed since RCIB’s initial release. How about a B-Road Britain sequel? Great Britain offers so much.
