How do I choose? The one I relate to the most is “I am not punctual myself, I know, but I do like punctuality in others.” I also really like “What horrid clothes you’ve got on. Do go and change them.”

Afternoon tea!

Which character from the show do you relate to the most?

I relate to Jack/Ernest in the fact that I don’t like taking nonsense from people. I do relate to Cecily, though, because we are both young and enjoy using our imagination and love tea and can sometimes get pretty silly and giddy.

This show is witty, fun, hysterical, and completely outlandish!
