The Wanderer

Show Summary

Welcome to The Wanderer guide at TV.com. Shy billionaire business man Adam and his wicked twin brother Zachary (both played by Bryan Brown) are two former knights from the tenth century born again in the twentieth. Zachary is after a complicated revenge on Adam, who killed him in the year 1000, but there is a lot more at stake than mere vengeance. The other players in both time-zones are Zachary's beautiful but deadly companion Beatrice, (Kim Thomson), Adam's friend Godbold (in the present day a philosophically-minded plumber and wrestler with a large beard, but once a hermit and monk, played by Tony Haygarth) and Adam's tenth-century lover Lady Clare (Deborah Moore). She has come back in the present day as Clare, a high-spirited photographer, and she does not plan to lose her man a second time. Wolfgang Mathias is Adam's personal assistant, but having no roots in the tenth century he gets pretty confused by it all. The series is thoroughy original, with echoes of Highlander, Quantum Leap and The Avengers. Every episode brings a new adventure, and the story of the two long-ago brothers, Princess Beatrice and Lady Clare slowly unfolds as Adam searches for Zachary's grave, a magic stone, and a lost book of power. The show was filmed on locations in Austria, Germany, Spain, and England, including Helmsley Castle and the Yorkshire Moors, by FingerTip Films (a partnership of Roy Clarke, who wrote the scripts, and producer Steve Lanning) for Yorkshire Television (UK), ZDF (Germany) and Antena 3 (Spain). This explains why the action begins in Austria and then moves on to Germany and Spain before arriving in England.moreless
