A wonderful retrospective romp; a series of adventures in the style of Enid Blyton's Famous Five. (Maybe Dick Barton is the grown-up version of the FF's Dick). Tony Vogel plays his part in the style of Michael Palin in his Ripping Yarns character. He is an excellent actor so presumably this was deliberate. Otherwise, Dick Barton (1979) is endearingly incoherent, but vintage car enthusiasts will love it. Essentially, the idea for the series, although produced thirty years after the radio original, seems to have been about thirty years ahead of its time. Miss Marple's latest series has produced a taste for the late 1940's so maybe another remake would be appropriate.
