King of the Castle

Written by Bob Baker and Dave Martin, King of the Castle was a surreal fantasy drama which starred Philip Da Costa, Jamie Foreman, Talfryn Thomas, Fulton Mackay, Milton Johns and Angela Richards. The show ran for seven episodes in 1977 and followed the shy insecure bullying victim named Roland Wright (played by Da Costa) who lived in a tower block with his nagging parents. Unfortunately his school bullies including Ripper (Foreman) also live there.

After a bullying incident that results in Roland faking down a lift shaft, he awakens to find he is in a fantasy world where everyone he once knew now have new identities. To get back he must recover a number of missing keys and become King of the Castle.
