BAFTA-nominated actress Maureen Lipman stars as Jane Lucas, writer of 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 a sequel fifteen years later. Based on the experiences of real-life Agony Aunt Anna Raeburn, Agony trod a thin line between black humour and genuine sadness - the darkest joke of all being that Jane offers solutions to people on a daily basis but can't solve her own personal problems.
