This review is from: Kingdom - Series 1  [DVD] (DVD)
At first glance this is just another in the series of those heartwarming comedies that spring from the BBC, and in many ways it is just that. There's the usual roundup of comic characters all doing their best east anglian accents, the major characters are all good people, and no one gets seriously hurt.
What sets it above the run of the mill is firstly the quality of the acting; Stephen Fry and Hermione Norris are especially good, and secondly the way in which the characters build and develop and bits are added to the back story episode by episode. There's a solid story under the froth.
I for one am certainly hooked.
