Interesting point, if not really true, by the commentator.
It’s also not true that “there is nothing glamourous in Carter’s world.” His bespoke suits looked pretty glamourous, I imagine, to much of the English audience. His character cuts an exotic, exciting figure in grimy Newcastle.
And those “Swinging London” scenes are set in 1971, not 1966, and again: Newcastle.
You’re looking at “Swinging London’s” migration to the Home Counties a few years later, and that “disco” is intentionally down at the heel, second hand and depressing.
Sheesh. Americans sometimes…
