The Completely Made-Up Adventures Of Dick Turpin review

If you're looking for a fun, history-adjacent comedy adventure, The Completely Made-Up Adventures Of Dick Turpin is a gratifying, surrealist romp. Fielding's Turpin may not be historically accurate at all, but his unfaltering optimism and love of knitting makes for one of the more unique interpretations of the legend.

Dick Turpin: a brilliantly absurd hit of nostalgia for Mighty Boosh fans

If you lean into the absurdity of it all, The Completely Made-up Adventures Of Dick Turpin is a lot of laughs. It feels like it was made for OG Noel Fielding fans (hello!), and it's a great introduction for those who have till now remained uninitiated.

The Completely Made-Up Adventures Of Dick Turpin review

It's not a stretch to call Made-Up Adventures downright derivative; it wears its influences, from Our Flag Means Death to Python to Blackadder, on its anachronistic pleather sleeve. But if you love the thing a derivative show is derived from, is that really such a bad thing? We'd happily hand over our jewels to spend a little more time with this pack of ne'er-do-wells.
