Classic BBC prison drama returns

Well, sort of returns. The cast of Tenko, the 80s prisoner of war drama series, are certainly reuniting to launch what looks to be a frankly incredible book all about the show, Remembering Tenko.

How could we forget? Thirty-one episodes of wonderful female-led drama that gays of a certain age watched with their mums. Stephanie Beacham, Louise Jameson, Stephanie Cole, Ann Bell… Amazing. In fact, we’d pretty much already decided that we were going to revisit the series on DVD over the coming months when we heard the cast were having a get together.

Sadly it’s not in Raffles. But it is in the Imperial War Museum. AND there are a very limited number of tickets available to buy, which includes a copy of the book which the cast will all sign… It’s unconfirmed whether you’ll be able to trade other favours for eggs or quinine.

Details of the event – and to pre-order the book – can be found here.

You can (and should) buy the series on DVD here.
