Star of the oh-so-British series of saucy Confessions movies, Robin Askwith, was the leading man in Bottle Boys, portraying an accident-prone, football-mad milkman doing the rounds for Dawson Diaries, based in south London. His fellow milkmen were blokish and berkish - among them Jock the boozy Scotsman, teddy-boy Billy Watson and Joe the obligatory black, while Stan was the Welsh-born depot manager and Sharon his big-boobed, unable-to-type secretary. The series was predictably high on low-brow humour and slapstick, but, while his impish grin was much in evidence, viewers were at least spared the famed Askwith derriere that had loomed so large and so often on British cinema screens in the 1970s. They were, however, treated to the sight of the actor sporting chicken and cow costumes (don't ask) and performing such dangerous stunts as clinging from a sixth-floor parapet and meeting Mrs Thatcher (not the real one, of course). It is with a certain degree of relief that one notes that, ... Written by

Truly Awful Sitcom
29 January 2004 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

In Britain, there's has been a long tradition of innuendo-filled jokes about amorous milkmen and bored housewives - however this show had an early evening time slot on LWT and so couldn't be as smutty as Robin Askwith's famous "confessions" seventies movies. It was also broadcast in the mid 80's, when this style of humor had well and truly passed it's sell-by date. It wasn't a huge success, and only lasted a couple of years.

The scary thing is that I still remember the words to the theme song - it pretty much sums up the whole show!

Bottle boys, bottle boys,

Up with the lark,

Who cares if it's raining,

Who cares if it's dark,

There's a whole lot of bottle boys taking a pride,

In making sure each customer is satisfied!

Milk, eggs and butter - got them all on the float,

Anything you're short of darlin' leave us a note,

Oh, you'll be glad you wrote it when you hear the noise,

Of the rattle of the bottles of the bottle boys!!
