TV A J Wentworth, BA (ITV 1982, Arthur Lowe, Harry Andrews) Published 6 months ago on November 26, 2018 In his last TV series, recorded just weeks before he died, Arthur Lowe played a maths teacher in a 1940’s prep school who was obsessed with old-fashioned school virtues. Fighting internal battles with his arch-enemy, Matron, the disaster-prone teacher (who was weak on discipline but strong on dignity) was constantly preoccupied by such trivial matters as the high cost of pen nibs. The snobbish cleric, Reverend R. G. Saunders, was the school’s headmaster. The series was based on stories by H. F. Ellis, although just six episodes were made. Lowe died on 15 April 1982. production details UK | ITV – Thames | 6×25 minutes | Broadcast 12 July – 23 August 1982 Writer: Basil Boothroyd Stories: H.F.
