Goodnight Mister Tom (ITV 1998, John Thaw, Nick Robinson)

Charming, award-winning family drama Goodnight Mr Tom stars John Thaw as “Mr Tom” Oakley, a widower who reluctantly looks after a boy who has been evacuated from London during World War II. Mr Tom is still brooding over the death of his wife and young son and so finds his new charge William an unwelcome guest. However, the old man soon takes the quiet 10-year-old under his wing after discovering the child has scars on his back and irrational fears, as a result of an abusive home life, and resolves to give him a better life.

Goodnight Mr Tom won the Most Popular Drama, and John Thaw the Most Popular Actor gongs at the National TV Awards in 1999. Thaw was voted number three in a public poll of TV’s Greatest Stars in 2006, four years after his death from throat cancer aged 60.
