Spare a Copper
The crime-buster is a key figure in modern fiction. Sherlock Holmes, Bulldog Drummond, James Bond are different men in many ways, but all fearless, resourceful, and highly intelligent. The latest in the line is none of these things, but he is clean-living, keen, and, he has his own bicycle.
He is in fact, Police Constable Albert Hereward Lamp and he makes his debut tonight in a comedy series, Spare a Copper. What he lacks in brilliance Lamp makes up in enthusiasm, for his father was a policeman, too. Lamp's father distinguished himself in the famous Sidney Street Siege when, single-handed, he tackled a crowd of soldiers who were firing on a house. This standard Lamp seeks to maintain. Lamp, of course, is a natural for Kenneth Connor. It's odd that this talented comedian has done so much broadcasting without having his own series before now. It is probably because he has been so valuable as a 'voice' giving support to such stars as Ted Ray and Frankie Howerd. As the star of Spare a Copper, Ken is rationed to one part: the rest go to Graham Stark, Deryck Guyler, Joan Benham, and others. The writers are John Esmonde and Bob Larbey, scripting their first series.
