Overview

The eighth season of As Time Goes By finds golden-age sweethearts Lionel Geoffrey Palmer and Jean Judi Dench fretting over the breakup of the romance between Lionel's publisher Alistair Philip Bretherton and Jean's daughter Judy Moira Brooker. At the same time, Jean's employee Sandy Jenny Funnell calls it quits with her policeman boyfriend Harry David Michaels. Midway through the season, Alistair has linked up with Sandy, and Judy is going out with Harry. Fun and games of a different nature occur when Lionel and Jean make a foredoomed effort to build a second bathroom in their house. On a more serious note, a financially strapped Lionel is faced with the possibility that he may have to sell his beloved country house. Things brighten up considerably by season's end, as Alistair returns to Judy and Sandy patches things up with Harry.

And the ninth and final season finds Lionel trying to smooth the rocky romantic path for his stepdaughter Judy, who has become re-engaged to Lionel's publisher Alistair. Emboldened by the Alistair-Judy example, policeman Harry pops the question to Sandy, the habitually unlucky-in-love employee of Lionel's wife Jean. Relieved that Sandy will at last be moving out of his and Jean's house, Lionel is soon to be un-relieved by the arrival of Jean's latest houseguest, a woebegone homeless girl named Davina Lara Cazalet. The series caps its nine-year run with highlights from previous episodes and an implicit promise that golden-agers Lionel and Jean will live happily ever after.
