Citizen Smith starred Robert Lindsay as "Wolfie" Smith, a young Marxist "urban guerrilla" living in Tooting, South London, who is attempting to emulate his hero Che Guevara.

In reality, he is an unemployed dreamer and petty criminal whose plans fall through because of laziness and disorganisation.
