I'm usually more into British mysteries, but I love Judi Dench, so I gave it a whirl. The two main characters (Geoffrey Palmer and Judi Dench), fell in love back in 1953. Geoffrey's character, Lionel, was in the military and Judi's character, Jean, was a nurse. Lionel leaves for the Korean war and writes Jean a letter that gets lost in the mail. Jean, thinking she's been dumped, is heartbroken. Lionel, who doesn't receive a response to his letter, is also upset, but both too proud to write a second letter! Thirty-eight years later they meet again. Lionel is divorced with no children and Jean is a widow with a grown daughter. The story, over 10 seasons (well, British seasons), is how they get together and the family dynamics. Lionel is now a writer and Jean runs her own temporary typing agency. It's a great show that anyone who enjoys good comedy will enjoy!
