Just William 2010 COMPLETE S01
Richmal Crompton’s much-loved mischievous hero Just William returns to television screens as a new four-part series adaptation by Simon Nye. Weaving together a selection of Richmal Crompton’s timeless short stories and setting them in the Fifties, Nye has written scripts faithful to her precise portrait of British family life.
The mischievous William and his gang, The Outlaws, like nothing better than wreaking havoc in the local woods. Dedicated to dastardly doings, William embroils his pals in a spot of boggy bother with new neighbour Mr Bott; manifests a menagerie mix-up with a pair of parrots; sets up a spot of blackmail; and takes to the stage to perform his own rendition of Hamlet.
