Paradise Postponed - The 11-Episode UK Series and its 3-Episode Sequel to be Released Together

Acorn releasing Paradise Postponed/Titmuss Regained in early October

Posted by David Lambert
    A gripping family saga from Rumpole creator John Mortimer, as seen on Masterpiece Theatre!

    Leslie Titmuss (David Threlfall, Shameless) has never quite fit in among the denizens of Rapstone village. Socially awkward and hailing from a humble background, he nonetheless aspires to the highest levels of society-and he's prepared to do whatever it takes to get there.

    For much of his life, Titmuss was taken under the wing of the kindly Reverend Simcox (Michael Hordern, Anne of the Thousand Days). This caused little concern for the clergyman's sons, Henry (Peter Egan, A Perfect Spy) and Freddy (Paul Shelley, A Tale of Two Cities). But when their father dies, they have every reason to complain: he has willed the family fortune to Titmuss.

    Was he mad? Or is there a darker explanation? Follow the families' interwoven histories from the years after WWII to the death of Reverend Simcox and beyond. Nominated for four BAFTAs, Paradise Postponed and its sequel, Titmuss Regained, also star Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient), Annette Crosbie (Edward the King), and Zoƫ Wanamaker (Poirot).
Acorn Media has announced that both the original 1986 11-part U.K. series Paradise Postponed AND the 1991 3-part follow-up Titmuss Regained will be released together as a 5-DVD set, available on October 6th. All 14 episodes, running 741 minutes, will be available in full screen video, with English Stereo sound and a biography of author John Mortimer as a bonus. Acorn's list pricing for Paradise Postponed/Titmuss Regained will be $79.99 SRP in the USA and CA$99.99 SRP in Canada. Here's a look at the package art:
