Editorial Reviews

A gripping family saga from Rumpole creator John Mortimer

As seen on Masterpiece Theatre

Leslie Titmuss (David Threlfall, Shameless) has never quite fit in among the denizens of Rapstone village. Socially awkward and hailing from a humble background, he nonetheless aspires to the highest levels of society—and he’s prepared to do whatever it takes to get there.

For much of his life, Titmuss was taken under the wing of the kindly Reverend Simcox (Michael Hordern, Anne of the Thousand Days). This caused little concern for the clergyman’s sons, Henry (Peter Egan, A Perfect Spy) and Freddy (Paul Shelley, A Tale of Two Cities). But when their father dies, they have every reason to complain: he has willed the family fortune to Titmuss.

Was he mad? Or is there a darker explanation? Follow the families’ interwoven histories from the years after WWII to the death of Reverend Simcox and beyond. Nominated for four BAFTAs, Paradise Postponed and its sequel, Titmuss Regained, also star Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient), Annette Crosbie (Edward the King), and Zoë Wanamaker (Poirot).

DVD FEATURE INCLUDES biography of author John Mortimer.
