Imogen Stubbs plays Ursula superbly in this TV adaption of Lawrence's novel. It was however somewhat overshadowed by the release of Ken Russell's film of the same story soon afterwards. This is the better version in my opinion.
La Stubbs is both gorgeous and vulnerable at the same time and the whole film is shot in beautiful surroundings with a class cast and a good script...and it has to be said, a liberal sprinkling of nudity, which in Imogen's case is no bad thing!
Recommended if you can find it!
