One of the best loved TV series of all time

Tenko is without a doubt one of the best-loved and most fondly remembered television drama series of all time. Created by Lavinia Warner and written by Jill Hyem and Anne Valery, Tenko told the forgotten story of women prisoners of the Japanese during World War II. Amongst the series memorable characters were reluctant leader of the British prisoners Marion Jefferson (Ann Bell); Doctor Beatrice Mason (Stephanie Cole) who had to practice medicine under appalling conditions; cockney loudmouth Blanche Simmons (Louise Jameson) who tries to escape; spoilt former socialite Rose Millar (Stephanie Beacham); disaffected Dorothy Bennett (Veronica Roberts) who has to cope with losing her husband and child; and Sister Ulrica (Patricia Lawrence) who comes to question her faith.

This website is a celebration of Tenko and offers episode synopses, character profiles and images from the classic television series.
