Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased) (2000)
Sit down with a cup of tea and escape...
"Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased)" (2000) is grossly under rated. Its extremely good TV you can't expect more. It is obvious that any comparisons to the original should not even occur. It is an original use of an old formula and the plot is completely new. I love Vic and Bob in this, it is interesting to see them play parts that do not require frying pans and doves from above. Is there anyone else who could have played Randall and Hopkirk, whilst keeping the same resonances that it does having Vic and Bob playing them? Their chemistry and close relationship is what makes this so good, with the introduction of Emilia Fox to add some extra spark. The special effects are very well done, and where it is lame I cannot help but think that they did it on purpose. They pay homage to so many things it is hard to tell. One thing that I find particularly fun is the fact that Charlie Higson plays someone different in nearly every episode. Its brilliant, you can sit down with a cup of tea and escape. If you are looking for something with good acting, blood and gritty story lines watch something else, there are plenty of things out there like that. "Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased)" (2000) is unique, which is unusual for a remake.
