Provincial heiress Lydia Aspen grows from bashful teen to wild jazz-age flapper while toying with the affections of a young writer and three other men who fall passionately in love with her. Loving the beautiful, brazen, impulsive Lydia is both dangerous and irresistible. A story of the joy and sorrow of young love that recreates late 1920s and early 1930s England in exquisite detail, Love for Lydia is based on the novel by H.E. Bates (My Uncle Silas). A PBS Masterpiece Theatre classic, the 13-part miniseries stars Mel Martin (Poldark, The Pallisers), Jeremy Irons (Brideshead Revisited), Christopher Blake (Brookside), and Peter Davison (Campion, All Creatures Great and Small).
