Storyline

The father, an ex-military man, sees the 'handwriting on the wall' as to where his country's economy is headed. In an effort to prepare for this, he moves his family of wife, two sons and two daughters out of the city to a secluded old mansion -- a fortress, a castle, as it were. In a confidence he shares only with his youngest son, he acquires stores, goods and foodstuffs, for the tough times he sees coming.

Memories
2 January 2007 | by kaggylou1See all my reviews

I was only about wight or nine when I saw this...can't remember what year it was broadcast in Australia, but it was one of the most believable and frightening series I had ever seen. I know more about Britain's history than I did then, but it still was chilling. The father holding a metaphorical gun over his own children in threatening them not to tell about the food hoard was memorable, as was David Neal's performance throughout.

If this series ever became available on DVD I would be first in line! What a shame there are no more youth series with the brains and grit Noah's Castle possessed today.
