"Match-making Dog brings happiness to all"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A Dog enters into the lives of all around him. And brings together a Porter with hands in too many pies, with a very attractive Orphanage Teacher.

Skull duggery is exposed by the actions of a richboy slob, with ambitions of the devious kind. The Signalman is in cahoots with usurpers wanting to overthrow the Monarchy.

Undoubtedly a worthy addition to Family entertainment.

"4-pawed love match"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

An excellent Family Movie; one devoid of the usual fare of swearing. Easy to watch. George Cole ( of MINDER fame ) plays the part of a fairly robust StationMaster. One of the Porters has his sights set upon a very attractive Orphanage worker.

And, through all of this, as well as the various comings-and-goings of a British Railway Station of the 19th Century, a Dog stands proud above all of the rest. Named JIM, and lives at the Station.

He is a bit of a match-maker, is Jim. Watch this for yourself.

And an exciting ending. Love strikes unexpectedly.

Description

Set in Victorian England, Station Jim is a family drama, full of steam trains, orphans, toothless gypsies and cheeky but polite young men, all of which provide a nostalgic background to The Littlest Hobo-style adventures of Jack Russell Jim.

After eluding his brutish owners, chirpy performing dog Jim jumps on a train bound for the picture-perfect village of Whatmidwell in deepest Devon. There he is befriended by Bob (Charlie Creed-Miles), a cheeky but sincere porter who is set on taking over from the retiring Station Master (George Cole) and winning the heart of the governess of the local orphanage, Miss Collins (Laura Fraser). The orphanage itself is under threat of closure if Reardon (David Haig), the greedy, unscrupulous son of the owner (Frank Finlay), gets his way. On top of this, Queen Victoria (Prunella Scales) is to visit the station, and Jim's owners are about to pitch up, determined to assassinate Her Majesty for the Republican cause. Jim is, of course, well up to the task of saving the orphanage, Bob's romance and the future of the British monarchy with the help of a few kids.

A magical mix from the pen of Mark Wallington, the writer of Happy Birthday Shakespeare and The Missing Postman. Starring George Cole (Minder), Charlie Creed-Miles (Essex Boxes, Nil By Mouth), Frank Finlay (Stiff Upper Lips), Laura Fraser (A Knight's Tale, Kevin & Perry Go Large), David Haig (Four Weddings And A Funeral), Prunella Scales (Fawlty Towers, Stiff Upper Lips) and John Thomson (Cold Feet, 24 Hour Party People).
