Title Help

In reply to:

This would now be a "period" piece but it was done as a contemporary drama and I think it was a BBC production. I saw it on a U.S TV cable station about the same time as I saw another psychological thriller called "The Blue Dress."

Plot is a about an Oxford or Cambridge lecturer who meets a woman that he knew in his childhood. Tries to start an affair. She is mentally disturbed and it ends with her stabbing someone to death with scissors.

I did not see the entire film. Part of the story had to do with a childhood nickname "piglet" (I think). He realizes that she does not remember him but is confusing him with another childhood acquaintance.

I can almost always find titles but this one has eluded me.
