Summary

Dame Judi Dench and Geoffrey Palmer star as old flames Jean Pargetter and Lionel Hardcastle. Their love story was all set for a happy ending in the 1950s when Jean was a student nurse and Lionel, a young army officer. But he was posted abroad and they lost touch. Thirty-eight years later, Lionel has returned to London to publish his autobiography and, through a strange coincidence, he is reunited with Jean who has set up a secretarial agency.
Specially adapted in six episodes for BBC Radio 2, this hugely popular BBC1 bittersweet comedy about the reunited lovers asks the burning question, Can the flame of passion still flicker in middle age?

A wonderful time!

This is a great radio play closely following the BBC T.V. series. The characters are well written and charming. The situations they find themselves in are entertaining without being fantastic or unbelievable and their interactions reveal a very genuine warmth. A healthy dose of sarcasm and self deprecating humor keeps the program from becoming too sweet. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the company of Lionel and Jean. The only improvement I could ask for is the ability to buy the next few series!

Just as charming as the television show

I don't know what there is about "As Time Goes By" but I am a fan of the TV show and I very much enjoy listening to these 6 shows on audio. The acting is first-rate and the story lines are cute and warm. I hope they bring more of the episodes to audio listening, as they are so enjoyable and relaxing.
