Literary author's second flirtation with TV fantasy (possibly)
This was an intriguing serial, following Fay Weldon's Life and Loves of a She-Devil, and centred round the lives of four girls who work in a chicken packing factory and their relationship with the owner's mysterious chauffeur (played by the creepily watchable Martin Kemp) who seems to have strange powers. There are echoes of the Witches of Eastwick and the Book of Job, and the final episode comes to a satisfying climax. It has been far too long since I watched it, so my memory is hazy on the details, but I remember being quite gripped by it, and if it still exists (I haven't seen it in the schedules since the first showing) I would say it's overdue for a DVD release.
