 Encyclopedia: Roundhead
The Roundheads eventually won the English Civil War, in part because the Solemn League and Covenant brought help from Scotland, but more because of the military leadership of Oliver Cromwell, who created the Ironsides cavalry regiment and then the New Model Army.
Unlike most of the Hartnell televised historicals, The Roundheads doesn't stick to the "history can't be changed" concept, although since history is invariably written by the winning side it's hardly surprising that the escape that Polly is party to never made it into the history books.
The Roundheads is a great read, with some memorable characters (notably the aforementioned Sal Winter and Nathaniel Scrope, who is more than the Baldrick-esque character he first appears to be) and a plot that manages to tiie everything in at the end.

Though Fallon had been out of office for a month by the time the secret tribunal was convened, the Vigilance Committee had occasion to scrutinize and review his conduct in office.
In testimony before the committee in July, Thomas Ainsworth (aka Tommy Roundhead), an Australian with an extensive criminal record, charged that Fallon had tried to set him up in business as a burglar, and, when he refused to cooperate, caused his repeated arrest.
