As Time Goes By Reunion Special
Series Description: Dame Judi Dench and Geoffrey Palmer reprise their famous roles as Jean and Lionel Pargetter in this two-part special, which picks up some time after the original series left off to reveal Jean's great anticipation for grandchildren, much to the dismay of Lionel. With son-in-law Alistair and daughter Judy experiencing difficulty conceiving, Lionel is put in an awkward position when he has to convince Alistair to visit a fertility doctor.
Much to Lionel's dismay, Jean is so eager for grandchildren that she orders cribs for the babies she hopes Judith and Sandy will soon have. [68 minutes]
It turns out that Lionel was the benefactor of Patrick's family and they all consider him their father. Still, Jean takes special delight in introducing Patrick to Penny as Lionel's son. Both Judith and Sandy decline the offer to run the secretarial agency. Lionel's hopes for a quiet night are dashed when Rocky injures himself line dancing and lands in the hospital. Through a series of mishaps, so do Stephen and Penny. [56 minutes]
