The Old Devils - The Complete Series
Kingsley Amis's classic novel, about a group of university friends reunited in retirement, was adapted into a critically acclaimed comedy drama by Andrew Davies and originally broadcast on the BBC in 1992. It's a turbulent story of ageing, friendship, lust, nostalgia and nationalism.
Alun Weaver (John Stride) has found success as a celebrated London-based writer. After returning home to Wales with his alluring wife Rhiannon (Sheila Allen) he reunites with university friends who chose to remain in the valleys. Long dormant romances are rekindled and rivalries are resurrected, posing a threat to marriages and friendships.
Not long after the old friends are reunited Alun kicks the bucket, leaving the rest of the group to deal with the fallout. Coming to terms with their loss, they reminisce, whinge and above all, drink.
This brilliantly written comedy drama is brought to life by an all-star cast that includes Elizabeth Morgen, Bernard Hepton and James Grout. In his final screen appearance, Ray Smith gives a scene-stealing performance that won him the BAFTA for Best Actor.
