Sorrell and Son

TV Mini Series

Country: UK

Genre: Drama



After his wife walks out on him, Captain Sorrell, officer and gentleman, has only a single aim in life: to do everything he can to secure the future of his young son, Kit. To this end, he is forced to take a menial job as a porter in the disreputable Angel Inn in Staunton. The devotion of father to son is passionately reciprocated by the boy, and as Kit grows into manhood and faces both triumph and despair, the vision of his father is always before him.


  • Based on the 1925 novel of the same name by Warwick Deeping, this miniseries is considered a very faithful adaptation by devotees of the book.
  • This is the only television adaptation of the novel to date. There have, however, been two adaptations for the cinema: one in 1927, with H.B. Warner as Stephen Sorrell and Mickey McBan as young Kit; and another in 1933, with H.B. Warner again in the role of Stephen Sorrell and with Peter Penrose as young Kit.
  • Paul Critchley appears as Young Kit Sorrell in the first two parts of this six-part miniseries.
