Description

Ralph Ernest Gorse is '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 genteel windows and ambitious swindlers. Gorse is no hero in the traditional sense of the word. He is a psychopath with the plausible charm of every mother's son, a sexual adventurer whose conquests are merely a means to obtaining what he really wants - money and power.

This Bafta-winning drama from writer Allan Prior (Blake's Seven) and director Alan Gibson (Tales of the Unexpected) showcases a career-best performance from Nigel Havers (Chariots of Fire) as psychopathic gigolo Ralph Gorse. This highly-rated drama also features strong performances from Bernard Hepton (Secret Army), Rosemary Leach (The Power Game) and Fiona Fullerton (A View to a Kill).
