Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Haydn Gwynne starred in this four-part, four-hour British miniseries as feminist lecturer Dr. Robyn Penrose. As part of a muckraking "Industry Year" assignment, Robyn dogged the trail of Vic Wilcox (Warren Clarke), the piggishly chauvinistic chief executive of a Midlands engineering firm. Born into wealth and privilege, Robyn just can't see eye to eye with the self-made Vic, and the feeling is mutual. But by the time the story concluded, both protagonists had learned a lot about each other, arriving at a détente of mutual respect. Not to be confused with the 1980 sitcom of the same title, Nice Work aired on BBC2 in 1989, winning the Royal Television Society Best Drama Serial award of that year.
