Kingdom Series 1 Review
Stephen Fry plays country solicitor Peter kingdom in this wonderful series set in the fictional town on Market Shipborough a small coastal town in the U.K.that is filled with quirky but lovable characters who seem to be in contestant need of Peters counsel.
The show is brilliantly cast with Karl Davies playing Kingdoms' assistant solicitor in training, who inevitably gets all of the dirty jobs and has a passion for helping those who need the services of Kingdom and Kingdom.
Hermione Norris plays Perers' half sister who has issues but also has a heart of gold and tries to help out no matter how mis directed her efforts may be.
Gloria Imrie Plays the secretary who is the heart and soul of the office and the unlikely love interest of Mr. Snell played by Tony Slattery whose smell is repugnant but personality is irresistible.
Though panned by the critics when it first aired the numbers of watchers have kept the show on the air for three seasons so far. The stories are funny, heartwarming and the location is nothing short of beautiful. It is a feel good show, which in my opinion there are not enough of these days. If you are lucky enough to have seen one you will be hooked as it is a wonderful break from the harsh violent television that seems to have taken over the airways these days.
The story lines have everything from comedy to drama and even a bit of intrigue. After watching, it is like stitting down to a full meal. One will find themselves satiated and truly satisfied looking forward to the next installment.
