The Queen’s Nose (BBC Kids, Victoria Shalet, Paula Wilcox)



Fantasy comedy drama series The Queen’s Nose detailed the adventures of young Harmony Parker (Victoria Chalet), a girl with a wish granting 50 pence coin. The series was made up of individual six part serials. Harmony left during the third series.
