Wreath Of Roses, A (ITV 1987, Joanna McCallum, Trevor Eve)

A Wreath of Roses

Well cast period drama A Wreath of Roses was based on short by Elizabeth Taylor (not the actress but the romantic novelist). While waiting for a train, a lonely woman is witness to a suicide on the tracks. A sympathetic man strikes up a friendship with her. At first reluctant, she is drawn in by his self-assured good looks, despite an uneasy feeling that he is not what he seems. She eventually discovers that he is hiding a deadly secret.
