Complete miniseries based on the novel by Fay Weldon. Ruth (Julie T. Wallace) is the classic dissatisfied, bored housewife, with a house in the suburbs, two children and an unfaithful husband, Bobbo (Dennis Waterman). When Bobbo eventually leaves Ruth for the seductive and enigmatic novelist Mary Fisher (Patricia Hodge), Ruth embarks on a sustained and brutally vindictive campaign of vengeance.

Episode 1
Ruth discovers that her husband has fallen in love with another woman and in her fury discovers that she has extraordinary powers. Peel away the wife and mother and what do you find?
Episode 2
It's hard to believe that sexy amazon Rita Rooney was only recently the Good Housewife Ruth, but you have to adopt strange roles as a She Devil determined on revenge.
Episode 3
Mary Fisher's romantic idyll with her lover Bobbo is beginning to fray a little as her drunken mother and her lover's demanding children invade their lives. But they still have each other. Or do they?
Episode 4
Mary Fisher's life is in ruins - she has lost almost everything and in her despair she turns to her priest for comfort. But how can she hope to win against the She Devil, whose triumph seems inevitable?
