TV: K is for...

King of the Castle

UTTERLY BAFFLING childathon charting the fortunes of boring posh teenager Roland Wright (PHILIP DA COSTA) who gets stuck in a lift which crashes down an elevator shaft in his block of council flats and delivers him into an alternative world where all the lovable locals have sinister alter egos and his stepmum becomes a witch. Typical HTV hokum, but considered too “controversial” by ITV suits for weekday fare and shunted into Sunday teatimes instead. Written by Dr Whoers Bob Baker and Dave Martin. FULTON MACKAY looked in as a mad scientist.
