"Mother Love" (1989) Diana Rigg David McCallum 2-DVD set. Truly twisted mum!
And you thought "Mommie Dearest" was the ultimate vicious, manipulating mother! Well, then you haven't met Helena Vesey, as portrayed by the always-splendid Diana Rigg in this 3-part British miniseries adapted from Domini Taylor's novel and shown in the U.S. as part of the fabulous "Mystery!" TV series. Helena has a problem, and a serious one, revolving around her psychotic over-protectiveness and desire for control over her son Christopher (James Wilby, so memorable in the remarkable miniseries "Brideshead Revisited"). She will stop at nothing to keep him in her life, including murder and the general destruction of the lives on anyone she perceives as a threat to her domination of him. She even plots the murder of her ex-husband Sir Alex Vesey's (David McCallum) current wife Ruth and children from his third marriage once she is able to properly dispense with Ruth by using her own dim-witted brother George. We learn through a series of flashbacks throughout the series that Helena has always been this way, beginning with a little school chum she perceives as betraying her trust in her when she dares to befriend another girl.She poisons little Maureen by using toxic plants in the jam on some cookies which she oh-so-generously offers to her. She's, in this respect, Mommie Dearest meets The Bad Seed. You don't want to mess with Helena...ever!

Also, a short bonus addition features an interview with screenwriter Andrew Davies as well as cast members.

The region-free (playable worldwide) 2-DVD set comes to you in a slim double-DVD case with full artwork shown here.

International (outside U.S.)orders are always welcome, and I used to send these Priority Mail for an additional fee, however as postal rates at my end have skyrocketed of late making that option unaffordable I can only offer First Class "small packet" service, which frankly has its risks, the biggest of which is the lack of tracking available, so PLEASE BE SURE YOUR MAILING ADDRESS IS COMPLETE AND ACCURATE PRIOR TO ORDERING in order to minimize the chance of non-delivery as these items are not returned to me if they cannot be delivered for any reason.

I accept personal or cashiers checks and money orders from U.S. buyers and PayPal from everyone in the whole wide world.

Thanks for looking and please feel free to message me with any questions.
