Agony: The Complete Series 3
BAFTA-nominated actress Maureen Lipman stars as Jane Lucas, writer for a problem page in a glossy magazine and radio agony aunt. A huge hit for ITV in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, Agony lasted three series and produced a sequel fifteen years later. Based on the experiences of real-life agony aunt Anna Raeburn, Agony trod a thin line of black humour - the darkest joke of all being that Jane offers solutions to people on a daily basis, but can’t solve her own personal problems.
This third and final series of Agony, originally screened in 1981, also features guest appearances from Peter Denyer, Beryl Reid and an early television role for Miranda Richardson.
