Capp in hand
4 March 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Andy Capp the famous Daily Mirror cartoon strip was adapted for television.

James Bolam played the flat capped layabout from Hartlepool who certainly loves a drink in the pub but here like everyone seems to to come from West Yorkshire.

The series was written by Keith Waterhouse but something went seriously wrong in the adaptation. It did not feel like a cartoon strip come to life. In fact Bolam never felt like Andy Capp to me at all.

Despite the hype at the time the series misfired badly. It was not funny, it was not good at all and the viewing figures quickly dwindled.
