The Mistress: Complete Series 1 and 2 [DVD]
Felicity Kendal is the other woman in Carla Lane's acclaimed bitter-sweet BBC sitcom following the ups and downs of an extra-marital affair.
Maxine (Felicity Kendal) is a carefree young woman, always the optimist. She runs a successful florist's shop. She's also having an affair with married man, Luke.
Although their relationship is illicit and Maxine is occasionally troubled by guilt and insecurity, she does not want it to end. The only thing in their way is Luke's wife, Helen (Jane Asher), who remains blissfully oblivious to her husband's extramarital activities...
Carla Lane, one of Britain's top TV scriptwriters, wrote this classic shocking and eyebrow-raising sitcom for the BBC, following her smash hit shows Butterflies and Solo. Audiences were outraged to see the nation's sweetheart, Felicity Kendall, playing the other woman when this bitter-sweet comedy first aired in 1985.
Despite the controversy the series proved extremely popular and the second series aired in 1987, also starring Felicity Kendal and Jane Asher.
