Intelligent love-triangle tale
1 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

Theo, the rich, bored wife of a crooked businessman is attracted to Vincent, a stranger whom she meets at one of their cocktail parties (for one thing, he shares her fascination with gardens and plants), and decides to leave Richard, her husband, for him. Almost as soon as she's gone off, she learns that Richard's business is under official financial investigation and he is in danger of being arrested. Putting her "duty" as a married woman over love, she goes back to him, to help him reverse the situation. And Richard does have a plan to do just that....The main - perhaps the only - flaw of this episode is that the story feels a bit rushed at 50 minutes, especially how Theo and Vincent already proclaim their deep love for each other in their third meeting. Apart from that, "Magnolia Blossom" is an interesting little spin on the usual love triangle story - it's actually more about personal integrity and code of honor than love. Ciaran Madden gives a strong, intelligent and subtly sensual performance; she and Jeremy Clyde, who plays her husband, outshine the most famous cast member, Ralph Bates. Madden can be considered as somewhat of an Agatha Christie regular in the 1980's: she also appeared in episodes of the Poirot and the Marple series. *** out of 4.
