The Irish R.M.

1983 NR

Set in 1897, this BBC series follows Maj. Sinclair Yeates (Peter Bowles), who gets more than he bargained for after he resigns his military commission to accept an appointment as Resident Magistrate in a small Irish community. When life in the rural hamlet doesn't turn out as he anticipated, hilarity ensues as the bewildered Yeates tries to muddle through the town's customs and culture. Anna Manahan plays his put-upon cook.
