Storyline

The story is set in an alternate 1970's, on an Earth where Germany won WWII and has occupied England. Peter Ingram is a writer on a popular soap opera (also called "An Englishman's Castle) that is set in London during the Blitz. Ingram lives a quiet, boring life, deliberately oblivious to the subtle rule of the local Nazis. His eyes are opened when the woman he is involved with reveals that she is both a Jew and a member of the Underground. Will Peter help overthrow his country's oppressors? Written by Mike Konczewski

A haunting memory for 30 years
4 December 2008 | by (San Miguel de Allende, Gto., Mexico) – See all my reviews

I can't add to the excellent comments made previously. On a whim, I checked this title on IMDb tonight and was surprised to find it listed.

I also watched An Englishman's Castle, on PBS/Harrisburg, while living in New Holland, PA in the late 1970s. I became increasingly involved and moved by the first two episodes. When the night arrived for episode 3, the station announced "An Englishman's Castle will not be shown tonight." It was never re-scheduled. I have never seen the series listed anywhere since. For decades, I have been wondering if this were intentional; there never was a third and final episode, and this was a part of the main plot. I see today there was a third installment. But I'm still wondering why this outstanding BBC production hasn't been re-broadcast (to my knowledge), and I can't even find it on Amazon.com
