Executive Stress - The Complete Third Series

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.
