Disney Grip

Thankfully all those ghastly TV Christmas specials are beginning to fizzle out, but the floods haven't abated and the storms are back! Weather aside, Will Christmas TV schedules in the UK ever escape the tenacious grip of Walt Disney? Tangled (2010) proved excellent, as did The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005), but The Princess And The Frog (2009) turned out to be Disney animation at its worst. The only good thing about it was that it reminded me of Anika Noni Rose, who played the bespectacled, frumpish, secretary Mma Grace Makutsi in the TV series The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Here she is in all her Hollywood glamour. Today's Disney offering is Enchanted (2007), a live-action / animated spoof of a fairy-tale princess (BBC One, 2.35pm).
