Hello Hackstraw:

Patricia Hodge was born  September 29, 1946 in Cleethorpes,
Lincolnshire, England.  She studied at the London Academy of Music and
Dramatic Art where she won the Eveline Evans Award for Best Actress.

She worked as a teacher prior to her stage debut in the play _No-One
Was Saved_ at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, 1971.  In 1976 she
married Peter Owens, with whom she has two sons, Alexander and Edward.
 Her first credited film role is _The Disappearance_ in 1977.

She is probably best known for her role as Philida Erskine-Brown on
the PBS  series "Rumpole of the Bailey".

In addition to her acclaimed work on stage, in film, and on
television, Patricia Hodge also records readings of Audiobooks, such
as ____

In 2002 she won a Laurence Olivier Theater Award for work her in the
play _Money_.

She most recently played former British Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher in the _Falkland Islands Play_ which was filmed for BBC
television.  Originally filmed in 1986 the film was a hit when finally
released after 16 years on the shelf.
She appears in the film _Before You Go_ which is currently in US
Aside from that I could find no reference to any future projects.

Be sure to consult the list of links I have compiled for you.  Her
pages at the IMDb page and Museum of Broadcast Communications together
cover her entire career.

I hope this is of help.

Upon reviewing my answer for this question I noticed a small error in
my original answer.  How embarassing!

Here a few audiobooks that Patricia Hodge has recorded:

Joanna Trollope - _A Passionate Man_
Penny Vincenzi - _Something Dangerous_

Very sorry,

The script for the Falkland Islands was written in 1986, however, the
whole project was shelved at the time.  It was not filmed until
immediately before its broadcast in April this year.  Please refer to
my answer to an earlier version of this question for details:
