TV Pretenders (ITV 1972, Frederick Jaeger, Curtis Arden) Published 3 years ago on August 22, 2016 Stirring historical adventure serial Pretenders was based on real life happenings. The series takes us back to 1685 to a time when the Duke of Monmouth was fighting his brother James (II) for rightful claim to be King of England following the death of their father Charles II. Despite being illegitimate Monmouth is convinced he is the rightful heir to the throne. The main thrust of the story though concerns the adventures of young Elam who believes that Monmouth is his father and embarks on a quest to join him. The exciting 13 part serial built up the famous battle of Sedgemoor which led to the eventual downfall and execution of Monmouth. production details UK / ITV – HTV / 13×30 minute episodes / Broadcast 27 February – 21 May 1972 Writer: Paul Nicholson / Producers: Patrick Dromgoole, Leonard White / Director: David Boisseau cast Frederick Jaegar as Joachim Curtis Arden as Elam Elizabeth Robillard as Perfect Jonathan Newth as Mr Morton Hedley Goodall as Mr Betterbridge Constance Chapman as Mistress Betterbridge June Barrie as Mistress Bracegirdle Geoffrey Matthews as Hopes Maurice Good as Caution Hamilton Dyce as Col Kirke Carl Bernard as Ferguson Juan Moreno as Soft John David Jackson as Officer Adrian Cairns as Courtier Robin Nedwell as Parsons Neil McCarthy as Henschall David JacksonFrederick JaegarHTVITVJonathan NewthJune BarrieNeil McCarthyPatrick DromgooleRobin NedwellTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes8 hours ago On the Case with Paula Zahn: Nowhere to Run (S9EP29 ID Sun 26 May 2019) Nowhere to Run: After two girls take a trip to the mall and never come home, they are found shot...
