The Lotus Eaters Complete First Series 3 DVD Box Set
3 DVD, PAL, Region 2, Run Time: 7 Hours 34 Mins
To eat the fruit of the lotus is to lose the desire to return home. But everyone who does has a reason.
Shepherd's bar is a focal point for a group of expatriates living in and around a small town on the isle of Crete. The bar is owned and run by reformed Alcoholic Erik Shepherd(Ian Hendry). For Erik temptation is never far away and his faltering marriage to Ann (Wanda Ventham) provides little solace.
The arrival of Englishman Donald Culley (James Kerry) causes something of a stir. Culley is charming, handsome and with his generosity he quickly wins over the other residents of the little community.
But Culley knows that the long suffering Anne has a secret of her own, a secret that could prove far more destructive than Erik's drinking.
A set of nine self-contained plays each tell the story of a different member of the community each one skilfully woven into the continuing sub-plot of the deteriorating relationship between the mysterious Erik and Ann Shepherd
