Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Roy Kinnear, the diminutive British comic actor who gained international fame in the films of Richard Lester, followed his first TV triumph That Was the Week That Was with this weekly, 25-minute sitcom. Kinnear starred as Stanley Blake, a gormless young man who regularly escaped his humdrum existence by retreating into the world of his vivid imagination. Anne Cunningham co-starred as Stanley's wife Helen, who played a variety of "alternate reality" roles in her husband's Mitty-esque dreams. Created by Dave Freeman, A World of His Own debuted in 1964, lasting two seasons and 13 episodes.
