- Dick Turpin: Series review by BN
Was a 1979-1982 London Weekend Television production written by Richard Carpenter. Two series of 13 episodes each.
Richard O'Sullivan in serious mode as the famous highwayman, a latter day Robin Hood saying he's only robbing from those who can afford the loss.
Half hour episodes, filmed on location in Maidenhead, Berkshire. DT frequently has to valiantly fight or get out of perilous situations while being pursued by Captain Spiker (David Daker) egged on by the vindictive Sir John Glutton (Christopher Benjamin).
A lot of well known faces as guest stars, Susan Hampshire, Donald Pleasance, Oliver Tobias, Alfie Bass, Patrick Macnee and more. Found this a well filmed, gentle costume drama romp, and the music seems the same as the incidental music in my box set of Lovejoy.
