Overview

From author P.D. James comes Cordelia Gray (Helen Baxendale), a young, aspiring private detective learning the ropes from her mentor, disgraced ex-policeman Bernie Pryde (Jeff Nuttall). But when Pryde's sudden suicide leaves Cordelia the sole proprietor of his ramshackle agency, she is forced to continue her education on the job. With only Mrs. Sparshott (Annette Crosbie), the agency's longtime secretary and Cordelia's new assistant, on her team, Cordelia is thrust headfirst into unfamiliar waters. An Unsuitable Job for a Woman Series 1 & 2 is an umbrella title for four multi-part dramas: Sacrifice, A Last Embrace, Living on Risk and Playing God. Airing on the PBS series Mystery! in 1995 and 1997, the set also includes introductions by Mystery! host Dame Diana Rigg. Series 1: Suddenly finding herself at the helm of a floundering detective agency, Cordelia wastes no time settling in. Series 2: One lackluster year after taking charge, Cordelia is still resolved to make her mark on the Pryde Detective Agency, determined to prove that the work of a private detective is not an unsuitable job for a woman -- or, thanks to an unexpected development, an expectant mother.
