William and Hester Fields have been very happily married for twenty years. Their children have flown the nest, and Hester thinks there are a few things left to do between now and the pension book. With a renewed zest for life and a fresh dynamism in their relationship, she insists that the couple take up a number of new pastimes and challenges - even if William sometimes lacks his wife s enthusiasm and seemingly boundless energy. Starring Anton Rodgers (May to September) as accountant William and Julia McKenzie (Cranford) as accomplished cook Hester, Fresh Fields wry, gentle humour made it a firm favourite with viewers, spawning an equally popular sequel French Fields and earning McKenzie a BAFTA nomination for Best Light Entertainment Performance. The series, which aired between 1984 and 1986, was produced and directed by sitcom veteran Peter Frazer-Jones (George and Mildred, After Henry). This release contains the complete third series, originally screened in 1985 and the Christmas Day special from that year.
