I'm looking for the title of a TV series probably from the 80s. It's about a British captain coming to feudal Japan with his crew, but Japan is already influenced by Spanish missionaries and in Europe, England and Spain are at war.
Of course there is lots of samurai stuff going on and people getting executed for no particular reason. But the most memorable thing is that the Japanese people only speak Japanese even though it's an English TV series and the only one able to translate English to Japanese is the Spanish missionary. Also a crew member is being tortured by being fried in the beginning.
Any hints on the movie title, actors, pictures, etc. are highly welcome.
