Connie

Stephanie Beacham was the star of this 1985 ITV drama, which also starred popular British actress Pam Ferris. She played a woman (Connie) who had lived in Greece for years and decided to return to the UK to take back control of her high-street fashion store. Hard-hitting and business-like, Connie was a clear commentary on the Thatcherite era. And without this role, Beacham may not have been offered the even more hard-hitting role of Sable in The Colbys.

    I remember the theme song 'Putting On The Show', which got into the charts in the Spring of'85 (was it sung by Elkie Brookes?) I think it was meant to indicate that Connie's hard-headed buisnesswoman image was only an assumed exterior- that in reality she was quite a vulnerable person who had to 'act tough' in the often male-dominated retail world (often against her own instincts).

    Me and my family and friends viewed Connie as an enjoyably camp comedy (although intended as drama). 80's TV reviewer Hilary Kingsley, and others, also took a very tongue-in-cheek view of this beautifully hammy series.
