Widows

FIRST-RUN LYNDA LA PLANTE-ation had the wives of three cons who die in a botched heist doing the next planned job themselves. ANN MITCHELL, MAUREEN O’FARRELL and FIONA HENDLEY were the mask-wielding marauders – with attitude! – while EVA MOTTLEY (later DEBBY BISHOP) tagged along to make up the numbers. Sub-feminist stuff, but way way above La Plante’s post-Prime Suspect latterday offerings.

    Debby Bishop replaced Eva Mottley for the 2nd series of Widows because Eva died of a drug overdose between series.
