A stolen Rolls and two very sharp pin stripe suits
25 November 2004 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This was a rare TV series put out by Channel 4 late on Friday night. It follows Roland Rivron (playing a martian) and Jules Holland on a trip around Britain in a stolen Roll Royce and two very sharp pin stripe suits. Each episode has a loose theme in which the two meet various odd and sorts of humanity in an effort for Rivron to understand what makes Britain tick.

Each of the meetings/interviews are carried out in a purely observational manner. This allows us to see and meet a strange collection of normal people without the program demeaning or questioning these people in anyway.

All in all an excellent series which was never repeated to date and will probably never see the light of day again.

Which will be a shame, for it captures a slice of gritty British life which we have moved on from now.
