Based on supposedly true events, The Monocled Mutineer is the story of dashing rogue and master of disguise, Percy Toplis. Written by Alan Bleasdale, the series provoked intense political controversy on its broadcast in 1986 and, after an initial repeat has not been shown since on British television. Private Toplis was already a chancer and a rebel, thanks to his tough childhood, when he arrived at the Etaples training camp in northern France in June 1917. But it was there, on the eve of the Battle of Passchendaele, as the soldiers were put through a brutal training regime, that Toplis instigated a mutiny which would shake the British authorities to the core.
Now a marked man, relying on his talent for impersonating the officer class, Toplis escapes to England where he falls in love with a young widow, but as the most wanted man in Britain, his struggle for freedom becomes increasingly desperate...
