Season one of As Time Goes By begins as acerbic author Lionel Hardcastle (Geoffrey Palmer) is unexpectedly reunited with implacable businesswoman Jean Parteger (Judi Dench), with whom he had an affair some 38 years earlier. Upon realizing who Jean is, Lionel would just as soon leave the past behind him, but he needs the help of Jean's secretarial service to finish his current book. As the two former lovers are brought together professionally, the old sparks begin to rekindle, despite the fact that so much has changed in the past four decades. Complicating matters is the fact that Lionel's publisher, Alistair (Philip Bretherton), also has designs on Jean. Fortunately, Alistair finds a more suitable companion in the form of Jean's daughter, Judy (Moira Brooker), but as the season comes to a close, the audience still isn't certain that Lionel and Jean, two golden-agers who are very, very set in their ways, will ever get together again.
