Created by Father Ted writing duo Graham Linehan and Arthur Matthews, Hippies is set in the 60s in Swinging London, where Ray Purbss (Simon Pegg) creates subversive magazine Mouth from his flat in Notting Hill, aided and abetted by Alex Picton-Dinch (Julian Rhind-Tutt), Jill Sprint (Sally Phillips) and Hugo Yemp (Darren Boyd). … Intended as a parody of the 1960s, it was savagely mauled by critics, and never returned for a second series.
