Painted Lady

by Granada Television (2pt)

Synopsis

Blues diva turned derelict Maggie Sheridan is trying to get her life back on track while staying with longtime family friend Sir Charles Stafford.

One night art thieves break into the main house and Sir Charles is murdered while trying to prevent them from stealing the one treasure that is sacred to him: the portrait of his dead wife. When the police fail to catch the thieves Maggie decides to take matters into her own hands. Maggie reenters the world as a countess and shady art dealer but finds more than she bargained for in the labyrinth of stolen art.

Reviews

The incomparable Helen Mirren is washed-up blues singer Maggie Sheridan, living on an estate in Ireland where she has been rescued from heroin addiction by faithful childhood friend Sebastian Stafford (a beautiful performance by Iain Glen).
