Saturday, 8.20pm, ABC1 Brand new it isn’t. This Stephen Fry series was cancelled three years ago, but never mind: it is timeless television, in a very British, very cosy way. Peter Kingdom (Stephen Fry) is a Norfolk solicitor helping a cast with ever-so contemporary problems. There is the Iraq veteran who has lost a leg and cannot imagine life outside the army; a secretary whose demanding dolt of a lock-keeping dad persecutes passers-by because he is lonely and frightened; a bloke with a promiscuous wife who becomes a marriage counsellor based on his domestic experience. And there is a young woman who the cavalry discriminates against, despite her being a fine rider, although her ability to drive an armoured reconnaissance vehicle fails to get a mention. Oh, and Kingdom’s sister wants him to set her up with a soldier. Gosh, what will happen? If you care, there is plenty of time to ponder the plot because it moves far slower than a cavalry charge. There is one intriguing question above all these contrived questions designed to appeal to as many people as possible: how did the producers ever convince Fry to star in this harmless waste of 45 valuable Saturday night minutes?
