The Other Simenon
Episode 1: A New Lease of Life
Three new dramatisations by Ronald Frame of stories by Georges Simenon.
When he wasn't writing Maigret, Georges Simenon produced a huge body of novels, often tough, gripping and psychologically-penetrating dissections of lives confounded by fate. In, The Other Simenon, we explore three more of his intriguing tales.
In A New Lease Of Life Maurice Dudon, a reclusive bachelor, who works as an accountant with no emotional or private life except for furtive and ritualistic visits to a prostitute every Friday finds his life changing after he is seriously injured in a car accident. In a private nursing home he forms a growing relationship with a nurse. But is it all fate or is his life being manipulated?
