An Englishman's Castle DVD


An Englishman’s home may well be his castle, but it would be a very different castle indeed if Germany had won WWII. Set in an alternate 1970s on an Earth where Germany won the Second World War and is now occupying England, Peter Ingram (Kenneth More) is the lead writer of a popular soap opera set in Blitz-era London. Ingram’s life sees little adventure. He knowingly turns a blind eye to the realities of local Nazi rule, opting for the easy life. After the inclusion of a Jewish character in his television series is met with strong objection, his eyes finally begin... to open. And when the woman he loves (Isla Blair) reveals that she was born a Jew, he has a difficult decision to make. Will Peter join his lover in the underground resistance or continue to lodge his head firmly in the sand? Also starring Kathleen Byron (Saving Private Ryan, The Elephant Man) and Nigel Havers (A Passage to India) and directed by Paul Ciappessoni (Angels, Softly Softly, Doomwatch, Doctor Finlay’s Casebook).

Kenneth More, Isla Blair and Nigel Havers star in this British miniseries that looks at how different life in the 1970s would have been if Germany had won the Second World War. Scriptwriter Peter Ingram (More) pens the popular soap opera 'An Englishman's Castle' which is set in London during the Blitz, but his suggestion to write a Jewish character into the series is met with fierce opposition from the people in charge. When his lady friend Sally (Blair) reveals that she is Jewish, Peter has a big decision to make: join Sally as part of the underground resistance or go on as normal and potentially lose the love of his life.
