Premiering on 27 July 1974, this six-part Saturday night series from Yorkshire Television starred Julia Foster as do-gooder Angie Botley, a ministering angel whose mission in life was to help people become happier and better human beings.
Whether they wanted to be helped mattered not at all . . .
Brenda Cowling and Peter Hughes played Angie’s parents, Gwen and Cyril, who have always watched over her as the cruel, materialistic world passed the doorstep of their suburban semi-detached. Brian Deacon was her jealous and possessive suitor, Henry Nutting.
Peter Barkworth was seen as Eustace Morrow, a run-down television chat show star and the man the viewers loved to hate (an obvious target for Angie), with Joan Hickson playing his mother.
Angie met Eustace via his charming manager Colin Peale (Peter Bowles), a man with an eye for a pretty girl, at the sauna parlour where Angie worked as a masseuse
Eustace – an egotist, a woman-hater and a cynic – was the antithesis of everything Angie stood for.
Philip Mackie wrote the series especially for Foster. David Cunliffe and Chris Hodson shared the directing with Peter Willes producing.
