Great Cockney comedy
29 March 2004 | by (Cameron Park, CA) – See all my reviews

I got hooked on this show in England in 1979 and got to the point where I was turning down invitations to stay home and watch the adventures of Turtle and his mates. Set in London's east end, Turtle's Progress follows a group of Cockney neer-do-wells in their attempts to lead lives of honest thievery. The stories were good, the dialogue sharp, and the characters engrossing. You'll notice some familiar names here, especially Michael Atwell, who have all gone on to higher things.

Be warned: the show was made by Brits for Brits, so the Cockney accents are not the usual watered-down fare you'll find in the made-for-export-to-America products. But persevere; Turtle's Progress is well worth the effort.
