Jasper is the perfect English Civil Servant - polite and refined. But to his girl friend, and even to himself, he is a bore. So he decides to become a painter in Paris. Not so fast. The powers-that-be send him to the country to dismantle a forgotten research unit which is headquartered in an old mansion. The eccentric owner lives in a railway train, on his own 'branch line', letting the government pay for the upkeep of his ancestral home. The small research unit enjoys running the stately home and everyone is content with the status quo. Enter Jasper who quickly meets Lord Flamborough's three daughters, who, in one way or another contrive to make Jasper feel very much at home. Jasper's life is turned upside down, and he must eventually decide where his own personal future will lie. Written by Derek Picken <>

A spirited, entertaining and over-the-top romp, with performances both textured and sublime.
21 September 1998 | by (Edina, Minnesota) – See all my reviews

Jaspar Pye, a hapless civil servant sent by Whitehall to close down an obscure statistical unit which is operating from a manor home, instead finds himself enchanted by the people and events of Arcady. The fact that the three daughters of the house find him instantly attractive, a sentiment reciprocated, is only the beginning. Mr. Pye's adventures find him the hero of a cricket match, a conspirator in mild skullduggery, sotted in a basement, besotted with the one sister out of reach, and thoroughly enmeshed in the course of life in this remote town. All roads lead to love, of one kind or another, for Jaspar. While performing his duties, he finds a sense of security and self which takes him to places undreamt of until the moment arrives to experience them.
