Masterpiece Episode: "All the King's Men"

Episode Synopsis: David Jason stars in “All the King's Men,” about a WWI British regiment (composed of workers at the royal estate at Sandringham), which goes into combat at Gallipoli in 1915.

Frank Beck. Queen Alexandra: Maggie Smith. George V: David Troughton. Howlett: Patrick Malahide. Edwards: Ian McDiarmid.
