Just watching her on Lorraine, she is much hotter in real life than when she plays Sam. She's a ginger like me too

I know the costumes in Foyle's War make her look older, but she still looks older than 33 in real life.

She's not aging well.

What a shame that some have to dismiss a woman for not going down the plastic route and just ageing naturally!

She is very beautiful and I love her voice. I was just trying to remember what she was in when she was quite young that I used to watch...off to google because my memory obviously doesn't stretch that far through the mists of time.

She's incredibly beautiful and talented and a credit to her profession. She looks great and in no way older than her years.

I still can't believe that's not a stage name. I bet school wasn't fun.

No it's her real name, her middle name is Susan

I remember being allowed to stay up late to watch it, despite it being a children's/teen book, it was on ridiculously late for me!

Wow, that's not very nice. Aging happens to us all - much better to be dignified and stay naturally beautiful than spend thousands and end up looking like Pricey or Vorderman.

I've thought recent publicity shots for FW have made her look old in the face too, at least relative to her age. Sometimes, unfortunately, inherited genes aren't kind, and there's little you can do about how 'old' you look if that is the case. But I believe Honeysuckle Weeks might smoke too in real life which really does put years on a woman - some more than others, obviously, but if you're also battling family genes which 'age' you more quickly you really don't want to be making it worse with something unnecessary!

What BBC channel would it be on?

I seem to remember watching it after school, i would have been 13 and had read the book.

I can't imagine where they would place it in 1993 when there was no childrens channel.

Could it have been a Sunday tea-time drama? Doesn't really seem like sunday evening childrens tv though (thinking in terms of Narnia, Box of Delights etc)

Some actors are well known for being insecure beings ....it's remarks like these that drive them into having awful plastic surgery.
I was watching The Good Wife recently and I couldn't concentrate on the programme because of the obvious 'work' Stockard Channing has had.
The sooner we are all acepted for what we are,naturally, the better.

I like Honeysuckle Weeks btw ....she's great in Foyle's War!

Wiki says BBC but not which. A little more searching shows 1st episode was 24/03/1993 which was a Wednesday.

Yes, a shame. Clever, talented, successful, reduced to yeah but she's not ageing well.

I remember her first in the wild house, I think she was the man character's older sister.

It was early evening, they may and probably did repeat it in the afternoon. But it was early evening, which at the age I was, was past my bedtime or close to it!

Yes, it was a weekday, it was on, I think it was on BBC2 after Ren and Stimpy. It wasn't on a Sunday, certainly not the first showing of it.

Well then it must have been at about 18:30 isn? like when Buffy was on?

Interesting that they decided to put it on at that point.

I did watch it, just assumed it was on during CBBC.

It was good.

You're just trying to make me feel old now!

I do remember at the time the TV critics questioned why it wasn't on Childrens Hour ( see I am old! ) but soon went quiet once it started. I knew nothing about it at first but watched because it had Alun Armstrong in it.

Bit like Adrian Mole I suppose, it could be enjoyed by all ages.
