Two Weeks With the Queen

by Morris Gleitzman

Adapted by Mary Morris

Directed by Loretta Tolnai

Season: 11 January to 22 February 2003

Colin Mudford, a 12 year old boy, is sent off to England to stay with relatives after his brother is diagnosed with leukemia. A plucky bloke, Colin plans to use the visit as an opportunity to track down the Queen's best cancer doctor to save his brother's life. In his search to find a doctor, Colin meets a gentle Welshman, Ted, who is visiting his AIDS stricken lover in hospital. The two become great mates. Thus begins Colin's unexpected adventure in which he becomes a most unassuming hero, of sorts.
