Lovejoy Mysteries Irish Stew

Fourth season of the sly, complex adventures of art connoisseur Lovejoy, artfully played with strength and a mellow voice by Ian McShane, opens with an Irish gambol about a retired, world-famous actress feigning illness, her ex-lover, and a long-missing holy book. McShane saves the day and the program for A&E, but it wouldn't last a sec on U.S. nets.

McShane’s usual three associates are ready to help: Dudley Sutton as properly dressed Tinker, Chris Jury as his assistant Eric, and Phyllis Logan’s shining Lady Jane — regrettably, Logan’s taking a hike from the series soon.

T.R. Bowen’s tricky script centers around the unearthing of a page from the rare book — and eventually the book’s hiding place. Along the way McShane encounters the actress (Stella McCusker) and her con-man adviser (T.P. McKenna), and mad Hennessey (John Kavanagh).
