Kingdom follows the life and business of Peter Kingdom, a solicitor on on the picturesque Norfolk coast. He is accompanied by his unstable sister Beatrice, his junior lawyer Lyle and a host of other regular and guest characters.
Stephen Fry is the perfect choice to plat Peter Kingdom as he has the mix of comedy and drama just right. Karl Davies as Lyle provides some great comedy moments, the doll blowing up on him in a sex shop springs to mind, but like Peter can also be a dramatic character and one which the auience can really sympathie with.
The show also has some great guest stars and fantastic regulars. Peter's Aunt Auriel is brilliant as she is everyhting that you wouldn't expect the resident of an old people's home to be!
The mix of the characters and the not too strenuous storylines makes Kingdom essential viewing.
