Not-So Lucky, Lucky Jim
14 July 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Big things were expected of the talented Enn Reitel in the early '80's. This series cast him as Jim Dixon, an ex-University lecturer struggling to make it in Swinging '60's London. Dixon is no 'dedicated follower of fashion', as he wears glasses and tweed suits with leather elbow patches. The character was originally intended as a spoof of the 'angry young men' of the late '50's. Ian Carmichael played him in a memorable 1957 film. Reitel was perfectly cast as the quick witted, face-pulling Dixon, Anthony Sher guest-starred along with Clive Swift, and the stunning Glynis Barber. It captured perfectly the heady flavour of 1967, with opening titles played against footage of dancing flower-people, backed by an Alan Price song called "Where Do I Go From Here?". Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais's scripts, whilst hardly in the same class as their earlier stuff, were funny, which makes the show's failure all the more perplexing. Reitel went on to provide voices for I.T.V.'s 'Spitting Image'.
