The daughter of a country doctor copes with an unwanted stepmother, an impetuous stepsister, burdensome secrets, the town gossips, and the tug on her own heartstrings for a man who thinks of her only as a friend.
I have seen this miniseries twice on American Women's Movie Network. I never even heard of Diana Dors and I am saddened to know about her too late and her difficult life. Diana Dors never even earned a British National Honour like a C.B.E.(Commander of the British Empire) which is sad enough and tragic too. She deserved it for being an actress, singer, and model. We watch her grow up from a young pretty girl to the British version of Marilyn Monroe. Diana married and was widowed before she met husband number two and had two sons with him. When she returns to England, she is paired up with a young actor, Alan Lake, and the two are truly soul mates despite his alcoholism. It is nice to see one celebrity marriage to last as long as they did.
