The Upchat Line, 1977
Created by Keith Waterhouse, this ITV sitcom was the predecessor to The Upchat Connetion and often gets forgotten about.
It ran for a series of seven episodes in 1977.
Meet Mike Upchat. An unsuccessful novelist who lives out of a railway station locker.
Whilst Mike may not be a success as a writer he certainly has the gift of the Gab and changes his life story on a regular basis to impress different women. Effectively re-inventing himself to score.
John Alderton was the only actor to appear in all seven episodes
