Had a surprise when the credits came up after the third episode of "Bird of Prey", a political thriller serial from 1982 starring Richard Griffiths. There was an actress playing a journalist who I thought I should know but couldn't put a name to the face. The surprise was it was Mandy Rice-Davis. If you are too young to remember that name, here's the Wikipedia note on her.
Funny thing was that there was another actress playing a sort of high class madam character which was a trade Mandy would probably know more about I suspect.
