4.0 out of 5 stars Not as strong as the first two series but still very good., 22 May 2013

This review is from: Executive Stress - The Complete Series 3 [DVD] (DVD)
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.

In series two they show their worth and it also finally gets revealed that they are indeed a married couple. They even get made Joint Managing Directors.

This series sees Caroline and Donald settling into their Joint managing Director roles at the firm, and facing different and comic problems.

George Layton wrote the series and another of my favourites 'Don't wait up'. It is a shame there aren't more of his to enjoy. We need more good sitcoms like this.
