Michael Kitchen heads a strong cast in this BAFTA-award-winning two-part drama, based on the true story of a solicitor who in 1922 found himself at the centre of one of Britain's most notorious murder trials. Also starring Sarah Miles, David Thewlis, Lesley Sharp and Don Henderson, Dandelion Dead is directed by the award-winning Mike Hodges.
Herbert Rowse Armstrong, mild-mannered solicitor and magistrate's clerk, is a respected citizen of the peaceful market town of Hay-on-Wye. He has the love of his three children and a deep pride in both his life and his garden.
But Herbert is a man at war on three fronts. He fights set-piece battles against his domineering, unstable wife and is in conflict with a pushy rival solicitor; he is also waging a war of attrition against the dandelions that have colonised his beloved lawn. Against the latter, Herbert's principal weapon is arsenic could that also be the solution to his other problems..?
