  1. Brilliant! I never knew that Adam Ant’s name comes from this show, even though I consider myself a fan. Thank you

  2. Oh, the opening music was changed. I’m guessing copyright problems while posting it to YouTube? I’ll miss the Horses! Horses! Horses!

    I love that because it was fashionable in 1966 London for young men to dress in Edwardian garb (they were known as Teddy Boys), Adam–who is actually from Edwardian times–blends right in in 1966 London. I’ll bet that was how the idea for the series came about; someone in 1966 observed some Teddy Boys and thought, “If a man from 1902 were transported to modern times, nobody would even notice!”
