The Adventures of Don Quick
30 January 2014 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Broadcast by ITV at 9pm on Friday nights, 'The Adventures Of Don Quick' was a lightly satirical comedy that often addressed the changing social values of the increasingly more liberal 1960s and 1970s. It had a science fiction setting but obviously tipped its hat to Cervantes.

'Don Quick' could boast the presence of Ian Hendry ('Police Surgeon'; 'The Avengers'; 'Doppelgänger'; 'The Lotus Eaters') as Captain Don Quick (Don Quixote) and Ronald Lacey ('The Avengers'; 'Porridge'; 'Our Mutual friend'; 'Raiders Of The Lost Ark') as Sergeant Sam Czopanser (Sancho Panza), with many other well-known British actors of the day making an appearance. It was (to me, as a pre-teen) a slightly (and intriguingly) risqué affair, so I watched it whenever I could.

It was a monumentally cheap-looking piece of television and must have had a microscopic budget. Due to the widespread policy of British TV production companies of re-using videotape, almost nothing of this series now exists.
