Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Aimed at the 13-to-16-year-old demographic, the Monday-afternoon British TV series From the Top was one of the lesser-known endeavors from actor-writer Bill Oddie, whose other credits included I'm Sorry, I'll Read That Again, Doctor in the House, The Goodies, and Bananaman. Oddie himself starred as William Worthington, a middle-aged bank manager who impulsively decided to cast off his middle-class complacency by enrolling in a drama school. Among the series' producers were Micky Dolenz of Monkees fame and former H.R. Pufnstuf cowriter Paul Harrison. The 12 half-hour episodes of From the Top were aired by Central Television from 1985 to 1986.
