After years apart, Lionel and Jean believe they now have little in common. The series plays out with Lionel and Jean spending a day in Buckinghamshire reliving their courtship days; and when Jean decides to make a play for Lionel's publisher, Alistair, Judith suddenly becomes impressed by the author.
As the series begins, Alistair decides that Lionel's finished book needs a picture of the author on the cover, but there's a hint of an ulterior motive in his suggestion. As events unfold, Judith goes away for the weekend, leaving Lionel and Jean with the house to themselves; Jean is surprised when she meets Lionel's outgoing father, Rocky (Frank Middlemass); and Lionel becomes suspicious of Alistair's desire for his book to be a success.
All ten episodes from the third season of the romantic sitcom starring Geoffrey Palmer and Judi Dench as Lionel Hardcastle and Jean Pargeter, a couple who are re-united after being out of touch with each other for 38 years. Their brief romance in the early 1950s was cut short when Lionel was posted off to the Korean War - but will things run more smoothly now that they are both older and wiser?

The series begins with Lionel finding himself surrounded by females when Sandy moves into the Pargetter household. Following episodes see Lionel being asked to spice up the script for the mini-series he is writing to make it more raunchy, and in a later show he reaches the end of his tether with busybody secretary Mrs Flack (Vivienne Martin); and Penny becomes convinced her husband is having an affair and insists on moving in with Jean and Lionel.
In the opening edition, Jean and Lionel spend a weekend away, but end up with several unexpected visitors. As the series continues, Lionel arranges an informal get-together with his ex-wife Margaret (Caroline Blakistone); Jean worries that Lionel's new passion for model boat-building is not active enough; and Jean and Lionel's quest for a quiet weekend together does not go as planned.
The series opens with Sandy worried she may have a stalker. In the later episodes, Jean ponders giving up work and handing the company over to Judith and Sandy; Jean frets when Judith starts dating a married man; and Jean and Lionel's peaceful weekend in the country is upset by the strange mood of their housekeeper Mrs Bale (Janet Henfrey).
The series begins with Jean suspecting Lionel is going deaf and Sandy fearing her boyfriend is more interested in rugby than her. In the later episodes, Jean hears from an ex; Jean does a spot of snooping on her potential neighbours when the house next door goes up for sale; and Lionel and Jean leave for the countryside in the early hours, but any hopes of remaining unnoticed are dashed as they arrive at their destination to be met by Mrs Bale brandishing a loudhailer in one hand and a shotgun in the other.
In the first episode, Jean does a spot of match-making and Lionel finds himself in a muddle. As the series continues, Alistair rocks the boat by asking Sandy for a date; Lionel suffers embarrassment when he walks in on Sandy in the bath; and Jean and Lionel argue, but the tense atmosphere does not prevent a visit from Penny and Stephen (Paul Chapman).
