The eighteenth century, swashbuckling adventures of Britain's legendary highwayman. When he returned from military service in Flanders, Dick Turpin discovered he had been cheated out of his inheritance by an unscrupulous landowner. Bitter and penniless, Turpin took to the open road as a highwayman. Possessed of a decided Robin Hood complex, he spent much of his time meddling in other peoples' troubles. His partner on the road was young Nick Smith ("Swiftnick"), and his perpetual enemy was villainous Sir John Glutton.Written by

I must admit that I like this show of very sentimental reasons. I was only five and loved this show really much. For a month ago i bought the DVD containing series 1. I forgot that the episodes lasted 25 minutes. Seeing it again tells how good the production value is of this series. It is really fast paced and contains a lot of humor. Qua ambiance you can compare this with the "Sharpe" series). OK, you have to love period drama's and you have to like swashbuckling adventures! If you are in to that stuff,than you will enjoy this series. This show is far better than most shows they make now. Go rent if possible or buy it. You won't regret it.
