Sunday 22nd March 2009
The friends are back in Mistresses: Series Two, released on DVD from 2entertain on 30th March 2009 and still looking for love, but will it ever run smoothly? It has been 12 months since we left Katie, Trudi, Jessica and Siobhan and, despite all their personal trials, their friendship remains as strong as ever. Struggling to learn from their past mistakes, the thirty-something women face new dilemmas, though the root of their problems remain the same - men and sex!
Having put herself back together after John's death, Katie retrains as a hospital doctor, where she meets charming and attractive surgeon Dan. Everyone, including Katie, can see he's the perfect match but is she really ready to surrender her carefully guarded single status? And are her feelings for her new boss and old flame Jack Hudson entirely professional?
Trudi, determined to put her past with Paul behind her, is enjoying a life of domestic chaos with Richard and their brood. Beset by financial worries, she starts supplying cakes to the local deli run by the gorgeous and much younger Lucas. When she stumbles across a series of mysterious payments Richard is making to an unknown woman, Trudi can't help but assume the worst. And of course, Lucas is more than happy to catch her fall.
Siobhan has worked hard at her relationship with Hari. Adoring parents to baby Elsa, their friendship goes from strength to strength but there is a catastrophic lack of intimacy in their marriage. Unable to resist her sexual desires, Siobhan seeks solace in the arms of strangers during a series of casual encounters at an upmarket hotel. All appears under control until one of her midnight trysts shows up in her office and threatens to bring the whole edifice tumbling down.
It's all change for Jessica. The archetypal single girl is getting married. Her fiance, Mark Hardy, is a dashing entrepreneur and a real tart - just like Jessica. They're both beautiful, they love the high life, they fancy each other like mad... and neither cares much for monogamy. It's the perfect arrangement - or is it?
With their friendship to hold them together, the four battle through love, lust, lies and infidelity in this sexy and sophisticated drama released on DVD from 30th March.
