Kingdom: Series Three (Three-Disc Widescreen Edition)
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Stephen Fry (Black Adder, Jeeves & Wooster) returns as Peter Kingdom, a warm-hearted, well-respected solicitor who devotes his career to representing the oddball people in the small Norfolk town of Market Shipborough, England.
With cases of military sexism, mysterious crop circles, trespassing Druids, invasions of privacy and ill-behaved nobility, Market Shipborough is a veritable proving ground for all the trials of humanity. Against the striking beauty of the Norfolk landscape, cool-headed Peter Kingdom is the man to go to with any problem - legal or otherwise - in this alternately comical and moving series.
Top Customer Reviews
I would highly recommend this Series to anyone. It is unbelievably good television. Excellent writing, the locations are breathtaking and dialogue is clear and (for the most part) easy to understand - there are a few guest stars with regional accents.
The cast is a dream to watch - quickly making it seem impossible we are not simply watching them live their lives. Each actor thoroughly inhabits the skin of the character; even those in the peripherals of the show (ie, Tony Slattery).
Give it a go, you will fall in love with Kingdom & Kingdom, et al.
Set in the fictional coastal town of Market Shipborough (you could almost believe the name was that of a real town!) Its the tale of a solicitor and his clients, and of course his family and their endless secrets and troubles. His sister's got emotional stability problems, (and she flaunts them), his brother faked his own death and seems to have the mob chasing him, while his clients never seem to need so much legal counsel as they do practical solutions to bizarre problems.
The residents of the town are colourful, quaint, and maybe just slightly mad, and yet still lovable. Its the sort of town where you would love to spend a day just meeting and greeting and possibly doing a little snooping, and wondering if you were still in the real world.
This is gentle British humour at its best and I heartily recommend it to anyone who likes to watch a show with a smile on his or her face.
A rare gem of a series with wholesome stories about everyday people - funny and touching, so missing on todays television shows.
Overall a fine ensemble piece that ended a few episodes too soon. ITV cancelled it after season 3 ended while the show was on hiatus so even the actors had no say in the decision. Boo Hiss!

Stephen Fry in Kingdom was a nice series that showed him in a lighter role, that wasn't a knockdown comedy. I would like to see him do more things like Kingdom.Published on May 10, 2013 by C. A. Young
