“The highlight of the programme….are three tremendous women” – The Times
In the first episode, Daphne and two friends are taken to Amsterdam in ‘this lively three-part series’ presented by Barry Humphries. ‘They were sampling cannabis in Amsterdam. Flames leaped up in their faces but only made them dissolve in giggles. It was shot in the Red Light District and is actually illegal but they enjoyed their trip (overseas).’

There is more in the Guardian, ‘They’re not here for the tulips’.
In Episode 2, Daphne and her two friends went off to try out virtual gaming and had fun ‘killing’ each other. She went to the hairdressers in Episode 3 , only to ask her stylist if she would make her look nice after she’d died – when she was in the coffin.
She threatens to climb out of a coffin next. OAPs on the rampage. There is surely to be another series. It is wonderful to see how gorgeous the senior citizens looked in their youth. Click here for photos of Daphne.
The clips have gone viral. ‘You’ve become an internet sensation, Granny.’
