Second episode aired on ABC TV Australia. May 18th, 2008.
The beautiful and talented Kerry Armstrong stars in this mini series as an unfortunate widow, whose husband dies in bed with another woman. Due to mismanagement of their money by the now dead hubby, Kerry (Louisa Atherton) and daughter Holly, wind up at the mercy and scorn of Louisa's mother. Mother and daughter take up residence in a dilapidated house on acreage, trying to make ends meet by taking any job on offer. Holly alienates herself from schoolmates, as she's seen better schools, having been at a private school in Melbourne.
I've always enjoyed watching Kerry in shows like the axed 'MDA', pulled at the end of it's second series. 'Bed of Roses', besides having an annoying and repetitive theme song in episode one, is not a series I would have cast Kerry Armstrong in. She's seen as a klutz, who couldn't fight her way out of a paper bag! Disappointing, as she's mostly been seen in confident parts.
