5.0 out of 5 stars Memories are made of this., 19 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Turtle's Progress - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
Anyone of a certain age has fond memories of TV shows that on re-watching don't quite live up to expectations. This is an exception. The contrasting characters of Turtle and 'Razor' Eddie, one a scheming coward, the other a laconic hardman, gell perfectly. Attwell as Eddie is perfect. A polite charmer who at the moment it's required oozes menace. The big surprise is John Landrey as Turtle. Bags of energy in his performance. It's a shame that he seemed to disappear of the acting map.
Presentation is surprisingly good. Well done to Network DVD for sourcing this supposedly long lost item. Worth every penny.

In case folks don't know - and if you enjoyed John Landry's perfect performance as Turtle - he was brought back to life to very good effect in the TV drama serial 'The Hanged Man'. Razor Eddie doesn't reappear (except by mention of the character's name), but Turtle becomes a pivotal element of the drama as it unfolds.

The Hanged Man - The Complete Series (2 Disc Set) [1975]

Good point but wasn't it the other way round - didn't The Hanged Man come first and then Turtle reappeared in Turtle's Progress? Sorry, not meant as a critical point I just wondered if I've confused the facts. And yes, John Landry is greatly under-used, should be seen more often.

Mmmm, you're right. I just checked and 'The Hanged Man' was first aired in 1975 whereas the 'Turtles Progress' series were aired in 1979 and 1980 respectively.

Interesting that in THM, references were made to 'Razor Eddie' but his actual creation was left until Michael Attwell did such a superb job. The two characters work so well with and against each other.

Thanks for the correction.

Did you know that Razor Eddie did appear in The Hanged Man but was played by Gareth Hunt in that series before Michael Attwell took on the role in Turtle's Progress?
