Ralph Gorse, a charmer in every sense of the word, is handsome, suave and stylish. It soon becomes clear however, that there is a much darker side to his character: that of a conman, seducer and murderer.

Whilst staying in Reading he seduces Joan Plumleigh-Bruce, much to the disgust of her friend Mr Stimpson, and succeeds in swindling a great deal of money from her. Running off to Brighton with the money, he soon wastes it all and has to get his old job back working in a car showroom. The owner's daughter, Pamela falls for him and on discovering she is pregnant, Gorse is forced to marry.

After an insurance scam goes terribly wrong, Gorse flits again, to try and start a new life with a false identity. With Mr Stimpson catching up with him, will Gorse succeed or will he finally get his comeuppance?

I vaguely remember this tv series from my childhood, I would have been 13 at the time and can remember discussing it at school with my friends. As soon as I found out that it was available on dvd I had to have it!
Its a great drama and actually won a BAFTA for best drama back in '87. Nigel Havers plays a fabulous role and he is rather dashing in this I have to say!
Great for those nights when there is nothing on tv.
