    Yes I do.



    Although I can picture the male lead his name escapes me. Dennis...? I think Lindsay Duncan was in it as well.



    I remember the tabloids ran some shock horror sex & violence tittle tattle about this and perhaps for that reason the BBC have never repeated it.



    The papers today ran similar pieces about a BBC/HBO coproduction entitled "Rome", which stars.......Lindsay Duncan!

    ...the other reason being that it really wasn't very good - I seem to remember watching the whole thing on its original broadcast, but I'm not at all sure why I bothered!



    A major reason for the controversy, I suspect, was that it was written by Howard Brenton, whose The Romans in Britain led to a huge censorship row when staged at the National Theatre in the early 1980s. Brenton's name alone would have been more than enough to set tabloid alarm bells ringing.

    Yes, I remember it too. Had to think hard, though - wasn't a member of the royal family the actual perpetrator? A tad controversial, too, what?!

    Lawson! That was it. I'll admit I was too lazy to go to imdb.



    Wetherby Pond I suspect you're right about it's overall quality. Although I know I watched at least some of it I can't remember a thing that happened which is normally a bad sign.



    Leonie Mellinger was in it though so it can't have been a complete write off.
