Hunt seems fairly strange at first as Dolly--it does take a while to get used to her diminutive stature. The magic comes on, however, when she starts manipulating Horace over dinner at the Harmonia Gardens Restaurant, easily the funniest and best-managed scene in the show. Hunt’s face is as plain and as tough as a walnut, and here she almost seems like some kind of leprechaun rescuing Horace from his worst self. What a Mary Poppins she would make!
