By Christopher Kenworthy
Citizen Smith was one of the great comic creations of the 1970’s.
Played by Robert Lindsay, and scripted by John Sullivan, who later wrote Only Fools and Horse, Wolfie Smith was the red terror of Tooting who captured the mood of the era.
The leader of the Tooting Popular Front, he was fighting for the freedom of the people of South London. There would be Marxism, Trotskyism, Maoism ..and then Smith-ism he confidently declared.
But in reality, he was a feckless loafer, always cadging money from people — and getting into one scrape after another.
Christopher Kenworthy’s novelisation of the much-loved television series, originally published when the series was a hit on television, brilliantly captures the humour of the shows.
It is a must-read for fans of classic British television comedy.
“Had me laughing as much as the original TV shows.” – Robert Foster, best-selling author of ‘The Lunar Code’.
