Man At The Top was over the top
6 July 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Yorkshire Man moves down south and finds all southerners corrupt and perverted. This is the basic premise behind Man At The Top, so you can imagine Joe Lampton (the hero) gets very angry about this, and he does frequently, always raving about something or other. People from the north were often portrayed as victims throughout the series. He becomes a very successful business man in London with the help of long suffering (southern) wife Susan, who comes from an affluent family. Long suffering because she ignores his various affairs, although in the end she does sometimes play the field herself. This series encapsulates attitudes between the north and south of Britain which hopefully have now gone?.
