Patricia Quinn plays Mona Castlebar, husband of Bill Castlebar (played by Sir Robert Stephens), in Episode Six of this BBC novel adaptation. In this scene she hears from the doctor about her husband's medical condition, which he later dies from. We then see her as a widow at his funeral, in a horrible bit of foreshadowing for later real life events. Patricia Quinn and Robert Stephens were actually a couple in real life at the time this series was being filmed, though they would not marry until several years later in January 1995. Less than a year later in November 1995, Robert Stephens passed away. Originally aired on November 22nd, 1987.
