Playwright Alan Ayckbourn's Norman Conquests trilogy comes to a conclusion with the 106-minute "Round and Round the Garden." Whereas part one took place in the dining room and part two was set in the garden, part three takes place in the garden of the home of Richard Briers and Penelope Keith. Still amorously pursuing his sister-in-law is the eponymous Norman, played by Tom Conti. A newcomer to the proceedings is veterinarian David Troughton, who has a habit of jumping to the wrong conclusion at every possible opportunity. Originally produced for British television, The Norman Conquest was screened in the US over various PBS channels and cable services.
