    Boy Dominic: The Complete Series




    In 1820, The Bright Star, a merchant ship captained by Charles Bulman, is wrecked off the North African coast. Charles is believed to have perished at sea; it is rumoured he sunk his ship for the insurance. Bulman’s wife Emma and twelve-year-old son Dominic are left destitute in London. They are forced to sell the family’s Greenwich home, and travel to Yorkshire, where they eventually open a guesthouse along with the kindly, if frequently inebriated, William Woodcock, who had served under Charles at the Battle of Trafalgar.


    But unbeknown to Emma and Dominic, Captain Bulman is alive – and while they struggle to make ends meet in England, he is using all his strength and determination to fight his way back to them, enduring imprisonment, slavery, villainous bandits, and deadly sword and musket fights.

    This epic adventure of separation and survival captivated viewers of all ages, and features a luminary cast that includes Richard Todd (The Dam Busters) as Captain Bulman, Brian Blessed (Z-Cars) as William Woodcock, Julian Glover (Doctor Who) as Mr. Jackson and Hildegarde Neil (A Touch of Class) as Emma. Dominic is played by Murray Dale (son of Carry On star Jim Dale). Among the scriptwriters is award-winning children’s author Penelope Lively, while Emmy award winner Terence Williams (Hadleigh) is among the producers.

    Boy Dominic

    A favourite drama when getting home from school, it had everything from a lead character that the target audience could identify with to historical adventure that the target audience would thrill to. Three big name adult stars and expensive location filming helped lift this series from everyday drama to a class above the norm. Some of the camera work may look a little shaky now and the acting style was certainly of its time but nevertheless this is a wonderful adventure serial with a feel-good ending just as great as The Railway Children! Now, please Network, can we have the long-awaited release of the sequel serial "Dominic" showing the main character's further adventure when he goes off to sea to avenge the death of his family.
