Reviews

With the children grown up, Caroline Fairchild has resumed her former career, assuming the role of Editorial Director for her old company, Oasis Publishing - against the wishes of husband Donald, who also works in the industry.

However, Oasis Publishing is now owned by an American conglomerate poised to take over Donald's employer - and learning that megalomaniac director Edgar Frankland Jr. takes a harsh line on married couples working together within his empire, Caroline and Donald have devised an unorthodox yet practical solution: they have become an undercover couple. The ploy seems to work, but an unpalatable aspect for Donald is that he now has to take orders from his wife...

Partly inspired by the challenges faced by the wife of writer George Layton on returning to work after having children, Executive Stress reunites Penelope Keith and her To the Manor Born co-star Peter Bowles. Presented here is the third and final series.

Like all of Penelope Keith's show's, "Executive Stress", was well done & very entertaining. We thoroughly enjoyed watching it. My only complaint is, the show should have gone on longer.

I have been looking forward to this third and final series being released, so as soon as it became available I snapped it up. I sat and watched the whole series in one viewing in the evening. I do love the pairing of Penelope Keith and Peter Bowles together, and they are just as good together in this series.They do have a wonderful chemistry.

Both Peter and Penelope seem so relaxed and comfortable in their roles that it is a shame that there were no more written for this wonderful series.

I was disappointed when the last episode ended. I will just have to watch it from the beginning again and I have to say that I think that Geoffrey Palmer who played Donald Fairchild in the first series was also fantastic.

For those of you who haven't seem the first two series and haven't seen the reviews, I will give a quick synopsis:

Caroline, played by Penelope Keith, wants to go back to work after bringing up her five children. The first series starts with them seeing their youngest child go off to university. Donald, is not very encouraging about his wife's prospects. She had a good career in the publishing business before she had her children and wants to return to her career. Donald who also works in the publishing business laughs at what he considers her naivety at thinking that she can return to her career. She does manage to step straight back into where she left off, and the company she starts working for just happens to buy the publishing house Caroline's husband works for, and on top of that they find themselves working together, side by side on equal terms. The company does not like married couples working together so they decide to keep it secret, which allows for a lot of comic situations.

I have just finished watching the 3rd and sadly final set. The last episode did not seem to reflect that it was the last one - if you get my meaning. I wonder if the producers meant for another series but it just did not happen.

As the saying goes "they don't write them like that anymore"

Penelope Keith and Peter Bowles are wonderful again in this funny , well-made series. It's not 'To The Manor Born', but then The Manor is a classic. I love this sereies and have all 3 seasons, including series 1 with the wonderful Geoffrey Palmer who can act in anything and be great.
