Shelagh, you've stumbled upon it with your list of guesses.

Triangle.

The BBC's effort at a 'glamour soap' to rival Dallas/Dynasty which was, bizarrely, set on a North Sea ferry!!! Needless to say it didn't catch on but the opening episode memory of Kate O'Mara sunbathing on deck lives long in the memory. Probably because it was included in the title sequence of every episode......

This question nearly lasted as long as the show! :lol:

Argh I thought that but only looked this morning.
Kate was a lovely lady, she was my colleagues neighbour and I met her at a couple of his parties.

That's the one Shelagh. Tom Baker was my favourite too; he looked exactly like Dr Who should.
