What Century Are You Living In?

Episode 1 of 6

After a few drinks, English teacher Jason Slater wakes up in the 19th century. Stars Michael Begley. From June 2003.

Jason Slater is a 21st-century English teacher from Cheadle Hulme who wakes in 19th-century Macclesfield.

In Jim Poyser's riotous comedy of transportation and delight, Jason discovers he's now Tarquin, third son of Lord Belport with a faithful valet, Ned who can't explain what's happened.

He's also acquired a suspicious brother, Henry; a spurned ex-girlfriend, Millicent, now going out with Henry; and an over excited Luddite-cum-cauliflower farmer.
