Kingdom - Series One

Kingdom is Stephen Fry's first drama series since Jeeves And Wooster in the early 1990s.

Filmed in Norfolk, the series (appearing on ITV in April 2007) follows Peter Kingdom's life in Market Shipborough as he takes on the responsibility for everyone's welfare.

Fry plays country solicitor Kingdom, whose compassion and humility has won him huge respect in the picture postcard town. But there's a secret sadness for the popular lawyer. His brother and business partner, Simon, has disappeared, presumed dead but his body has never been found. Peter constantly searches for clues to the mystery surrounding Simon's death.

Hermione Norris stars as Peter's troubled and lustful younger half-sister Beatrice, who wreaks havoc when she comes to live with him after discharging herself from a rehabilitation clinic. Celia Imrie is Gloria Millington, the faithful receptionist and confidante, Phyllida Law plays Peter's dotty Aunt Auriel, and Karl Davies is the sharp young trainee solicitor, Lyle Anderson, who dreams of escaping the sleepy backwater to work in the metropolis. Tony Slattery blusters through as the cantankerous villager Mr Snell, who's always seeking litigation.

The DVD includes all six episodes in Series 1.
