Now for the first time on DVD, in one special collection, are all three complete series of the acclaimed UK TV hit Kingdom starring the ever-popular and versatile Stephen Fry.
He plays Peter Kingdom, a compassionate solicitor whose life is overshadowed by the mysterious death of his brother. The series follow Peter's life as he takes on responsibility for everyone's welfare. Set in the picture postcard town of Market Shipborough, a beautiful Norfolk town bordering the fens and the sea, the drama focuses on Kingdom's dysfunctional family, the people he works with and the town's residents.
Winding roads, glorious skies, bustling streets and peaceful beaches ; a tightly-knit community, full of quirky and charming characters. In the centre of the town, overlooking the market square, stands an impressive Georgian building with a brass plaque on its door - 'Kingdom and Kingdom. Solicitors and Commissioners for Oaths'. This is the home and workplace of Peter Kingdom.
At Kingdom and Kingdom we meet Gloria (Celia Imrie), his loyal and sensible receptionist, Lyle (Kyle Davies), his young and confident clerk, Milly, his dog, Beatrice (Hermione Norris) his troubled and lustful younger sister and a flow of colourful and often eccentric people who walk through the doors in search of legal advice.
As Peter drives around in his beloved Alvis, investigating case after case, we see in 20 enthralling episodes the town through his eyes, we meet people who turn to him for help; we are intrigued and often amused. But underneath all of the noise and clatter of clients, locals and his nutty sister Beatrice, there is one quietly lingering mystery and a secret sadness endured by this popular lawyer.
