Storyline

From the Irish countryside to London to New York and back again, Maggie reenters the world as a countess and shady art dealer. With her panache and charisma, she finds more than an auction, a rekindled interracial love affair, helpful relatives and a painting of great price. She finds more than she bargained for in the labyrinth and milieu of stolen art. Written by <WDRazo@prodigy.net>

Quotes

Maggie Sheridan: [Oliver has returned home &, hearing "Wild Thing" blaring, knows someone else is in the house: brandishing a cricket bat overhead, ascends the stairs, & more stairs, enters the bathroom. Finding his sister-in-law Maggie snoozing in the bath, he turns the bat toe-down. Maggie languidly turns her head & opens her eyes] Good match?
Oliver Peel: Rain stopped play.

Excellent mini-series
7 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

Talented actors, strong performances, music, murder, suspense and art history - what more could you ask for? To follow-up on the comment by blanche-2, the dynamics between Helen Mirren's character and her family are really humourous. Michael Maloney is excellently cast as 'Oliver Peel' along with Lesley Manville as his wife. If you get the chance to see this series - do - you won't regret it. :0)
