5.0 out of 5 stars Don't stand, get it delivered!, 18 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dick Turpin The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
I remember watching this as a kid in the late 70's,
it seemed pretty good fun then, so I thought I would give it another go.
And I wasn't disappointed, made by a team including British quality TV stalwart Richard Carpenter,who also brought us the excellent Smuggler & Catweazle (as well as many others).
This is a quality show,from the moment Turpins horse rears up in the moonlight to the strains of the spooky theme tune, you are hooked! the stories are excellent, with the right mix of drama and comedy, with the 'Upright Man' being my favorite, Richard O'sullivan is excellent as Turpin,as are all the cast really, the villains ham it up nicely and It looks good,attention to detail has been paid to clothing and the way people spoke in the 18th Century, unlike later offerings such as BBC's Robin Hood where they all seemed to wear modern clothing and Robin himself spoke as if he had just walked out of an episode of Corrie!
If you are a fan of nostalgic British TV, when people made the effort, do yourself a favour and snap this up, you won't be disappointed!
