    Yes, I'm not religious but I actually found it quite interesting.

    Throughout I was thinking that I liked Mary's hair but overall I thought it was good, it made the 'story' seem more real.

    It had some of the worst acting I've seen in a very long time, which is a shame as it had potential.

    It had great potential, but it seemed quite cheaply made and the acting was moderate at best.

    I saw only the latest episode just by accident and thought it really quite good! It made the Bible characters seem much more real - like they were real people with emotions and problems
    I will agree that the acting was a bit dodgy at times but overall it was a really good concept

    I just stumbled across it, but I actually thought it was ok. Certainly better than I was expecting.

    Hmm. I think it was ok, not a complete loss. I can see what they've tried to do..the worst bit was when Mary was giving birth and then Joseph grabbed her hand :/ that was quite embarrassing to watch and cheesy as well, which I didn't expect from the BBC.

    Good point! I think one of the "wisemen" was black.

    I was loving it! Would like to know where Mary plugged her curlers in, but apart from that, all was fab!

      It's not the first time the BBC have produced a Nativity show with historical innaccuarcies. A few years ago, they made one set in modern-day Liverpool.
