    Does anybody remember a comedy, I think set in Wales, called the Newspaperman?? I think it was on in the 80's and I don't think it went beyond one series. The only thing I really recall about it was that Victoria Plucknett (Duchess of Duke Street) was in it but there is no mention of it in IMDB ....nor anywhere else on the web!

    I remember Victoria Plucknett in a number of Welsh language programmes when I lived in Wales. None of them memorable. This was pre-Duchess of Duke Street. I believe she's now in the long-running (interminable?) Welsh soap Pobl y Cwm (People of the Valley) which must have featured every Welsh speaking actor at one time or another. I suggest an email to BBC Wales could produce the answer.

    I thought I would resurrect this old thread of mine from 2006 because I think there is even more expertise at Britmovie now and someone may know the answer .



    We all remember her as Mary from The Duchess of Duke Street getting a hard time from Louisa Trotter but she was completely different in this show. The shapeless rather dowdy Victoria had morphed into a very sexy, slimmer woman. I believe Welsh viewers know her from a long running Welsh language soap which is still on now but I saw this programme in 1985 in London. I THINK it was in an episode of a series called The Newspaperman but the episode may have been called this. The action took place in a cabin in a forest, IIRC.



    Any ideas, anybody? I HAVE sent a message to BBC Wales about it.
