A Lonely Woman
14 April 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Maria Palmer stars as a lonely married woman named Sylvia Ackroyd, who has just turned 40, and finds herself longing for her younger days in World War II, where she was paradoxically happier in those adventurous days in France. Despite the peace and security of her marriage, she is unhappy with her husband(played by Robert Douglas) who is well off but indifferent to her needs, and treats her more like his daughter he most support rather than love. When Sylvia seems to make contact with an old "spirit" named Jeremy, her husband plans to have her committed, but a most welcome rescue gives her an unexpected way out... Romantic mystery episode works well, with a nice ending.
