Trivia

Many of the close-ups of Jeff's hands during the series, were performed by Writer, Producer, and Director Charlie Higson, because Bob Mortimer's badly bitten fingernails were deemed unscreenworthy. According to Charlie Higson, "Bob's hands are not that attractive. Mine, however, are quite gorgeous." See more »

Lots of fun
22 April 2000 | by Marwood-4See all my reviews

Don't watch this if you're expecting to see the 60's version of Randall and Hopkirk, with prettier effects. Randall and Hopkirk 2000 (as I shall call it), is nothing of the kind. It is the same TV series in name alone and that's the way it should be.

Gone are the seedy back-street meetings of a TV series that seemed to be almost embarrassed to feature this fantasy element - which only arose because creator Dennis Spooner wanted to write a series about a ghost. The original Randall and Hopkirk was almost apologetic about the fact that one if its main characters was dead.

Thankfully Randall and Hopkirk 2000 revels in it. The plots are a little predictable, but if you want heavy detective drama go watch Cracker. Writer Charlie Higson did what they daren't in the 60's. He had fun.

The only real flaws are Reeves and Mortimer. Whoever told Vic and Bob that they can act should be shot through the lungs. That said, there has been a very clear improvement in the quality of their acting as the series has progressed.

And don't even get me started on Tom Baker. The man is a genius!

Roll on series two!
