1950s, Leeds: Betty (Billie Piper) is a wife and mother, whose life is changed forever after falling hopelessly and dangerously in love with her charismatic Polish neighbour, Alex Crazenovski, better known as "Craze". Against her principles, she soon abandons herself to a world of untapped thrills and passion, a world that has been so desperately missing from her own conventional and claustrophobic marriage. But 30 years later, an older Betty (Sue Johnston) comes to realise that her compulsive passion of the past and its consequences have created ripples that spill far into the future, finally reaching crisis point on her beloved son's wedding day.

This is a review of the show as shown on tv.Very good drama at its best and even though this isnt my usual kind of show i did enjoy it very much.The first half of it was well acted and pulled you into the story.The second half which is when Sue Johnston appears in it and plays the lead role is what really entertained me.Great acting as ever from the British legend who makes the charactor so watchable and at times funny but always with a serious side to it.Great drama and i would recommend this to anyone who likes there tv drama's.

When this two-part mini-series first appeared on our screens in 2010 I had no idea at the time that it would change my life forever!
I watched it on BBC iPlayer until it was no longer available, then I sat on the Amazon DVD pre-order list for many months before it finally arrived in February this year.
I'm now out of an unhappy marriage, back to the job I loved, embarking on a life-changing hobby that will see me travelling the world, financially secure and happy with my lot for the first time in years.
Back to being the passionate woman I always was!
All thanks to this!

I really loved the drama 'A Passionate Woman' I thought the 1st episode was amazing, and was engrosed for the entire 90 minutes, but sadly I missed the 2nd.
I can't wait for it to be released on DVD, so I can see the ending!!
Does anyone know when its going to be released??

I watched episode 1 last night when I found it amongst my old recorded programmes. I loved it, but unfortunately I didn't record episode 2, so now I'm dying to see what happened. Billy Piper was very very good, she is one very versatile actress. Beautifully done.

The grimy back streets of Leeds in the 1950s. In a shabby, damp-ridden flat Betty, mother of a young child, is trapped in an apparently loveless marriage to Donald, a foundry worker. In a dance hall she meets and falls passionately in love with a Polish immigrant called 'Craze'. Thirty years later, as the wedding of her adored son Mark is imminent, her past catches up with her in ways she could not have foreseen. Kay Mellor's stage play-into-television film is based on her own mother's life. In style it is cut from rather conventional cloth (lashings of sex in the first half)and is slightly marred by a protracted, as well as a somewhat farcical, climax and an overly sentimental ending. Nevertheless Mellor achieves some genuinely emotional depth and there are two fine performancec from Billie Piper and Sue Johnston as the young Betty and the old Betty, respectively. The DVD set includes interviews with the writer and the two actresses, among others, and these are a little less tedious than is usual with such behind-the-scenes extras. Viewers familiar with Leeds will recognise a number of the locations.
