Work starts on Kingdom Series Three

Stephen Fry returns to Norfolk to make a third series of ITV1s ratings-winning series, Kingdom.

He is joined by Hermione Norris, Karl Davies, Celia Imrie, Tony Slattery, Phyllida Law, John Thomson and a host of prestigious guest stars including June Whitfield, Peter Sallis, Sandi Toksvig, Jaye Griffiths and Anna Massey.

Filming has just begun on locations in Norfolk on the six-part drama which follows the fortunes of Stephen Frys character, Peter Kingdom, an affable country solicitor in the picturesque Norfolk town of Market Shipborough.

Hermione Norris stars as Peters troublesome sister Beatrice who wants to rediscover her sexuality after becoming a mum. Karl Davies returns as newly-qualified solicitor, Lyle Anderson, who is keen to make his mark in the practice.

Celia Imrie stars as Gloria Millington, the faithful receptionist and Peters confidant, who is having a terrible time with her demanding, elderly father. Phyllida Law plays Peters dotty Aunt Auriel, and Tony Slattery plays cantankerous villager, Sidney Snell. John Thomson, a guest star in the last series, returns as a regular cast member.

Life in Market Shipborough is never dull for Peter Kingdom and Lyle Anderson as they seek to resolve the legal issues the locals bring them. In the new series they deal with the problems of crop circles, try to help a war victims bid for compensation, and encounter animal liberationists at work.

Executive producer Simon Wheeler says: Were really pleased to be back in Norfolk this summer. There are so many stories for the Kingdom family and beyond that we cant wait to tell.
