The Devil's Mistress (The Devil's Whore) (2008) (TIC)
Friendships will be tested and loyalties broken. The drama has only just begun...
In this dramatic tale of intrigue and lust, we follow the trials and tribulations of the manipulative Angelica Fanshawe (Andrea Riseborough, Happy-Go-Lucky) as she exploits a country in crisis in a bid to better her own position. Set against the backdrop of the English Civil War, Angelica abandons her loyalties to the Royal Family following the execution of her childhood sweetheart and first husband, Harry Fanshawe. Destitute, Angelica finds herself on the wrong side of the law, suddenly embroiled in murder and misadventure in a bitter struggle for survival. This sumptuous mini-series is a rich tale of love, betrayal and renewal set in a time when yesterday's lovers could suddenly become tomorrow's enemies. -- (C) EOne Films, 2008, USA/UK.
