Plot & Details
Based on the 1990 mystery-suspense novel by Ruth Rendell, the two-part British miniseries The Strawberry Tree focused on a middle-aged lady named Petra Summers, played by Lisa Harrow. Petra's calm, well-ordered existence was sorely threatened when the spectres of her past caught up with her. Among the supporting players were George Baker (who also scripted) in his familiar guise of Inspector Wexford, Eleanor Bron as Rosario, Simon Ward as Will Harvey, and Tamara Ustinov, daughter of Peter Ustinov, as the District Nurse. The Strawberry Tree was originally broadcast April 21 and 28, 1995 as part of ITV's Ruth Rendell Mysteries anthology.
