      • Nigel Havers is the suave and deadly Ralph Ernest Gorse, a.k.a. “The Charmer" - minor public schoolboy, social climber, seducer of women and eternal seeker after the main chance; his stalking grounds are the roadhouses, boarding rooms and grand seaside hotels of the 1930's, the haunts of vulnerable widows and ambitious swindlers. Gorse is no English hero in the traditional sense of the word. He is a psychopath with the plausible charm of every mother's son, a Lothario whose conquests are merely a means to obtaining what he really craves - money and power.

        This double BAFTA-winning drama from writer Allan Prior (Blake's Seven, A Perfect Hero) and director Alan Gibson (Tales of the Unexpected, Raffles) showcases arguably a career-best performance from Nigel Havers (Chariots of Fire, Empire of the Sun) as psychopathic gigolo Ralph Gorse. This highly-rated drama also stars Bernard Hepton (Secret Army, Midsomer Murders), Rosemary Leach (The Power Game, Holby City) and Fiona Fullerton (A View to a Kill, Angels). Find out the lengths that Gorse is willing to go to in this stylish TV drama.
