Hilltoppers – The Telegraph Hill Soap Opera

As part of this year’s Telegraph Hill Festival volunteers have produced a new soap opera called ‘Hilltoppers’ – an everyday tale of urban folk, or maybe Children of the Quorn.

The first episode was uploaded yesterday and there will be a new one daily. With impressively high production values and a talented cast list, it features a couple of matriarchal characters of the sort that only exist on British television, but it’s entertaining stuff and includes a performance by a local cat, which relegates “Bouncer’s Dream” to second place in the all time great soap scenes involving animals.

Look out for the subliminal marketing for the new skateboard park and a cliffhanger that will have you clamouring for more.
