The Admirable Crichton

BBC4 presents Russell Tovey in this adaption of The Admirable Crichton. It was first released in 2009 and again 3rd June 2011.


Adaptation of JM Barrie's classic satire about the changing fortunes of Crichton, the perfect butler. Liberal aristocrat Lord Loam favours a return to nature, with masters and servants living together as equals, but Crichton is the perfect butler and the perfect snob who adores the intricacies of the class system. He cannot help but be horrified by his master's opinions, and it will take a sea change to alter them.

JM Barrie ...... David Bannerman
Lady Mary ...... Beth Chalmers
Lord Loam ...... David Timson
Lady Agatha ...... Martha Howe-Douglas
Ernest Woolley ...... Gunnar Cauthery
Tweeny ...... Lizzy Watts
Rev John Treherne ...... Adrian Grove
Lord Brocklehurst ...... Stephen Hogan
Lady Brocklehurst ...... Tina Gray

Directed by Fiona Kelcher.
