    Can anyone help me remember this programe. Would be most grateful if you can.



    Drama shown on BBC or ITV in possibly the late 1980's. It was about a man who gets conned/duped by a women he possibly meets at work (I recall some scenes shown in an office). I remember one of the characters lived in a windmill (not JC!). She may have driven a red or yellow sports car or wore a red or yellow dress. She may have worked as a prostitute. He trusts everything she says because he is infatuated by her beauty etc.



    I can't remember anything else about it. Sorry!

    Not set in a windmill but an old lighthouse.

    Definitely not either of Life and loves of a she devil or Jonathon Creek (we all know Jonathon Creek lives in a windmill. I was just waiting for someone to mention that series. Try again!!).

    Sorry .... I didn't know it was a test. If you knew it wasn't Jonathan Creek why not say so in the first place.

    Sorry!. In my initial post after I mentioned that a character lives in a windmill I put "Not JC!". I thought you might have twigged what I meant. I won't try to be so clever in future .

    It's AN AFFAIR IN MIND (1988) with Stephen Dillane and Amanda Donoghue. The first tv drama I know where the plot hinged on the slowness of an SE Apple Mac . . .

    I'm thinking this sounds correct. I had no idea it featured one of my favourite actresses Amanda Donoghue. By the way, were all of the details I gave in my first post actually in the drama. After all the windmill/jonathon creek arguments in this thread I bet there is not a windmill in sight.



    By chance is it available on DVD or VHS in the UK? I bet not!!!!

    Yes, the main character, a struggling writer, (improbably) rented a converted windmill in Kent and a spiffy sports car, driven by A.D, did feature. I chiefly remember the Mac which, in those days, cost upwards of two grand. I did my writing on an Amstrad PCW but aspired to a Mac and bought one the minute the first budget model became available. I also remember the sex scenes with I've-got-a-great-body-and-don't-mind-showing-it Donoghue - quite racy for those days !

    I was surprised to learn that this drama was written by Ruth Rendell. I must have been a fan of Ruth Rendell without knowing it. I also really enjoyed the drama No Night Is Too Long. I have to admit that The Ruth Rendell Mysteries bored me to tears though.
