Kingdom - Series One
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.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
