Adapting R.F. Delderfield's classic story of love, lust, crime and betrayal, this three-part mini-series centres around a young bank clerk whose yearning to escape the mundanity of 1930s small-town life is answered all too readily when he falls for an exotic beauty with dangerous intentions.

Come Home Charlie and Face Them was the final project of North Wales-born actor/writer Alun Owen, a key figure in 1960s television drama whose credits include the Oscar-nominated screenplay for A Hard Day's Night and scripts for landmark anthology series Armchair Theatre.

Charlie Pritchard is a bank cashier in a small Welsh seaside town; lodging with bank manager Evan Rhys-Jones, he forms a relationship with Ida, the banker's earthy, quietly determined daughter. Ida's simple appeal pales, however, beside the promise of passion embodied by the seductive Delphine – who with her brother, Beppo, runs the lively Rainbow Café. Charlie and Delphine are irresistibly drawn together... but each for entirely different reasons.
