Twenty-five years after their hugely popular love-hate relationship was finally resolved in marriage, we revisit the happy couple for a one-off special as they prepare to celebrate their Silver wedding anniversary. Aristocratic Audrey (Penelope Keith) has resumed her imperious command over the estate, the farms, and the neighborhood, while dashing self-made businessman Richard (Peter Bowles) has, to all appearances, settled down to the life of the definitive gentleman farmer. While Audrey's old social circle have all been bought up by the big food syndicates and fled, they are proud survivors. The scene is set for a grand party, until an extraordinary confession gets in the way. With the help of her long-suffering school friend Marjory (Angela Thorne), a fearless Audrey goes into battle to defend a community, safeguard 400 years of history, and save her marriage.
