Program Description

Lionel Hardcastle (Geoffrey Palmer) and Jean Pargetter (Judi Dench) met in the summer of 1953 or 1954 (depending on the episode) and fell in love, but when Lionel was sent to Korea they lost touch. He had sent her a letter when he arrived in Korea, which she did not receive, and each assumed the other had lost interest. After his war service, Lionel had gone to Kenya and become a coffee planter. He and his wife, Margaret, had divorced on the grounds of "mutual boredom", and he had moved back to England. Jean married, and after her husband's death set up "Type for You", a secretarial agency. She has a daughter, Judith Hanson (Moira Brooker), who had married twice with both marriages ending in divorce.

In the opening episodes, 38 years later, Lionel selects "Type for You", initially unaware that Jean is the proprietor, to finalize the copy for his book My Life in Kenya. When Jean and Lionel recognize each other, their romance begins to blossom again, but only after a slow start. In the third series, Lionel moves into Jean's house in Holland Park, London, and they marry during the following series.
