Period military drama series The Last Post, created by Peter Moffat, takes us back to the 1960’s, when a group of Royal Military Policemen and their wives are posted to Aden in The Yemen. It’s dangerous times and the officers are caught right in the middle.
Dashing, newlywed RMP Captain Joe Martin (Neumark-Jones) and his wife Honor (Buckley) arrive dressed like JFK and Jackie, full of excitement and ambition about the start of married life. A big new adventure. But how well does Honor know the man she’s just married?
Feisty Alison (Raine) couldn’t be more different. Direct, funny, a woman ahead of her time, she feels cooped up and claustrophobic and ready to lead Honor gloriously astray. Alison’s husband Lieutenant Ed Laithwaite (Campbell Moore) is a progressive soldier, a deep thinker. The army doesn’t like this about him. Somewhere down the line Ed and Alison seem to have lost each other. Gin, red lipstick and other men give Alison what she feels she needs now. Can these two outsiders find each other again?
Other characters include stoic Mary Markham and her husband Major Harry Markham who is the commanding officer.
Moffatt based the series on the lives of his parents.
