Masterpiece Episode: "All the King's Men"

Season 29, Episode 14
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. There, legend has it, the men disappeared into a “golden cloud,” but as dramatized here, their fate was far grislier. Jason plays their stiff-upper-lipped (but big-hearted) commander, Capt. Frank Beck. Queen Alexandra: Maggie Smith. George V: David Troughton. Howlett: Patrick Malahide. Edwards: Ian McDiarmid.
