Abstract

Newcastle-born Jimmy Nail became an overnight star in 1983 as a result of his striking performance as a Geordie bricklayer, Oz, in Auf Wiedersehen Pet. This chapter focuses in particular upon the television shows Spender and Crocodile Shoes which Nail produced at the height of his television fame in the early 1990s. It suggests how their nuanced articulations of regional identity and realism can be read through an auteurist recognition of Nail’s own ambivalence towards his former home and his career trajectory.
