The Irish R.M.
By George Gates
Peter Bowles (Rumpole
of the Bailey, To
the Manor Born) returns as Major Sinclair Yeates, a retired
English army officer appointed Resident Magistrate for the West of Ireland
in the days before Irish independence. It's the mutual misunderstanding
between the English and Irish that brings so much humor to the Major's
attempts to bestow order upon his eccentric community, even while he
strives to befriend the townspeople.
Set in the early 1900s, this PBS Masterpiece Theatre classic also stars
Bryan Murray, Lise-Ann McLaughlin, Anna Manahan, Brendan Conroy, Sarah
Badel and Diane Fletcher.
