Frankly, I'm expecting Lynda La Plante to be a bit of a hard-boiled harridan.Given that her books and TV dramas - all based on her own scrupulous research - are dark, fast-paced thrillers featuring crack dens, bent cops, murderous psychopaths and, quite often, formidably steely female detectives, I'm assuming an element of professional cynicism will have invaded her private persona. Sunny, witty and able to extract laughter from even the deepest seams of tragedy, she is also warm, compassionate and a natural raconteuse. 'It's such a beautiful emotion when you hold in your arms that child you have dreamed about for so long.
Actress Helen Mirren as DCI Jane Tennison in Prime Suspect Her own story is terribly sad.Meanwhile, she accrued professional success and huge wealth - she is worth an estimated £30 million - but had begun to ask herself what it was all for. Here she is on infertility: 'Sometimes it was excruciatingly awful; sometimes ridiculously funny. When they're coming back from their ramble in the p*****g rain, you have to be there. Lorcan calls him The Captain because he also has a huge boat.' He has a home in The Hamptons, the chic waterside enclave in New York State where Lynda also owns a house.Then, out of the blue, an American adoption agency, on whose waiting list she had languished for years, called to offer her a son. If I'd given birth to him he'd probably have been a very short-a***d little fellow: 5ft 2in with awful red hair. At one clinic where I went for treatment, the mothers who had just given birth were next to the ones having fertility treatment. But I always had a great career as a substitute.' She is single and, of course, in her 60s now. 'It's difficult when you're single and you're working. She says Lorcan has many male role models - her nephews, her brother - and she has made ample provision for guardians: there are six. She is famous for her uncompromising first-hand research of her novels.Now she contests this: 'I don't know if he did or didn't have preferential treatment, so I can't talk about it.' But her own wait for Lorcan only sharpened her delight: today she remains besotted with her beloved boy. I have been warned not to broach the thorny subject: Lynda promises to address it in her autobiography. It usually comes from shop assistants who'll ask Lorcan: "Are you out with grandma today? She works from her home, in Richmond, Surrey, jigsawing writing around her commitments to motherhood, often rising before dawn or typing into the small hours. 'We have children round for play dates and sleepovers - the bunk beds are up - and the other day a mother came in and she couldn't believe I was on the floor with a cowboy hat on. Apparently there is, but only if he understands that his role is subsidiary. All these horrors she can close away behind that steel shutter in her mind when she finishes work. The terror of that is excruciating.' Being a mother has awoken her, too, to the almost unendurable suffering her own parents bore, with quiet stoicism, when they lost a child.'I will be dishing the dirt and Anne Robinson will be in there! " and you say: "No, he's with his mother." And then you get: "Oooh, sorreee."' She re-enacts this little tableau with all the appropriate comic voices, registering haughty affront and then whining apology. 'I'm fortunate because I can pick up work whenever,' she says. But she admits the atrocities that always stick with her involve child cruelty. 'And it is even more poignant when you have actually had a 17-month-old child of your own. Their first daughter, Dale, Lynda's older sister (she also has a brother, Michael and a sister, Jill) was killed in a road accident when she was five; the same age that Lorcan is now. 'The most poignant thing for me with Lorcan is realising what my parents went through when they lost a child his age. 'My mother never really referred to having only three children.
I worked steadily, even if the parts were similar – I was always a prostitute!
