Did anyone else have a strong Animals of Farthing Wood reaction to the John Lewis Christmas advert? The animation was very similar and some of our favourite animals were prominent around the Christmas tree, Badger, Fox and Weasel. I didn’t spot Adder but maybe she was up in the tree somewhere pretending to be tinsel.

What with the melancholy music and sad Hare face I was fearful that the Bear might not survive the story. Farthing Wood had a very brutal habit of killing off characters. It’s not often that a feeling dread rises when watching a Christmas advert but I was pleased to see a happy grief-free ending to the story.

I just wondered if any other Brits in their mid-twenties shared my reaction?
