    Stephanie Beacham takes the title role in a drama of intrigue set in the cut-throat world of the rag trade. Her performance as a feisty fashion entrepreneur led directly to her phenomenal success in The Colbys and Dynasty, and dominates a series bristling with razor-sharp humour and boasting a plot full of surprises. Also starring Pam Ferris, George Costigan and Brenda Bruce, Connie was originally screened in 1985, and features a theme song co-written by the Oscar-nominated Willy Russell (Blood Brothers, Educating Rita).

    Eight years ago, Connie 'retired' to Greece to run a taverna with a local Adonis. Now, her return to her native East Midlands and the industry she loves sends ripples of fear through the dingy offices of her former rivals; they all guess, correctly, that she wants a slice of the action. But who will give her the all-important toehold? Her family and friends are no help and what nobody knows is that although Connie came back on a first-class ticket, she got off the plane wearing a simple cotton dress, nursing a bandaged hand and clutching a handbag containing nothing but tissues, a lipstick and ten drachma.

    The people who cheated on her, in or out of bed, had better watch out!
