Starring Steve Delaney, Rory Kinnear, Andy Linden, Ruth Posner, Dave Plimmer, Chris Ryman, Zahra Ahmadi
Steve Delaney stars as the befuddled, malapropism-dropping former variety star in this TV comedy based on the popular BBC Radio 4 sitcom.
After a life spent resolutely denying his own infallibility, 72-year-old thespian Count Arthur Strong (Delaney), beset by memory loss and delusions of grandeur, is tracked down by his former variety partner's son Michael (Rory Kinnear) who is writing a biography on his late father's life and wishes Arthur to contribute some anecdotes.
But as Michael attempts to gain insight into his father's life from the man who knew him best, he finds himself trapped in the chaotic maelstrom that constitutes Arthur's world.
The episodes are: 'Memory Man', 'Arthur.com', 'The Radio Play', 'Arthur's Big Moment', 'Doctor Two' and 'The Seance'.
