Francesca Annis stars in the internationally-successful, BAFTA award-winning costume drama series about the life and loves of Lillie Langtry - the dazzling beauty who defied the conventions of her time and became the favourite of the Prince of Wales. Annis won a BAFTA for Best Actress for her moving portrayal and is strongly supported by Anton Rodgers as Edward Langtry, Denis Lill as the Prince of Wales and Peter Egan as Oscar Wilde.
Lillie is a passionate story of scandal and intrigue in Victorian society and a romance that shocked the nation – he was the Prince of Wales, Heir Apparent to the throne of England and its Empire; she was an actress and professional beauty who disdained the moral conventions of the day. Lillie became one of the brightest lights of London society, enjoying the companionship of both the Prince and Oscar Wilde among many others of London’s beautiful people as she escaped the drudgery of her loveless marriage. Hers is a life of considerable ups and downs, of riches and ruin, of love and scandal – an unforgettable life that unfolds in this unforgettable production.

- March 2012: Update
This seems to be another of those Network releases (who release most of the ITV releases) which seems to get harder and harder to find.
In the meantime while we try and find more copies, you might try amazon.co.uk and a direct link is below.
This marvellous 4-dvd set serves as fitting testament to the fact that this was one of the most important TV shows to have appeared on British TV in the 1970s. Why? Because it made Annis a star. And what a star! What a role. Yes, she gets decent support but at the end of the day this is all about her. Spellbindingly good. I dare you to take your eyes off her.
