Go back to the start with Life Begins & Kingdom tonight...
From the writer of Cold Feet, Life Begins starts tonight at 7pm and stars Caroline Quentin as Maggie Mee and Alexander Armstrong as her husband Phil.
When Maggie's husband walks out on her and their two children, he leaves her back at square one and trying to rediscover herself. Feeling desperate after she is abandoned, Maggie does her best to keep life on an even keel for her children and find a job.
Starting tonight at 8pm, Kingdom Series 1 stars the quintessential Stephen Fry in his first acting role since Jeeves & Wooster, the series follows Peter Kingdom's life in Market Shipborough as he takes on the responsibility for everyone's welfare.
Stephen plays country solicitor Peter, and when his brother disappears leaving only some clothes on a beach, Peter forces himself to put on a brave face and return to his work as a solicitor. He soon finds himself dealing with two very different cases, one focussing on planning regulations, and the other concerning the untimely death of a woman in her jacuzzi. Then Peter's younger half-sister (Hermione Norris) arrives to stay, having just discharged herself from rehab.
Also stars Celia Imrie as Gloria Millington, the faithful receptionist and confidante, Phyllida Law plays Peter's eccentric Aunt Auriel, and Karl Davies plays the quick-witted young trainee solicitor, Lyle Anderson, who dreams of escape.
