I am a "May to December" husband. My wife is 28 years younger than I am. We have had 19 happy years together this Feb 14th. I worked in Pinner Middlesex England as a policeman for 9 years and the show was filmed in the village,not on a studio lot. I think this was one of the best shows that the UK ever sent over to the USA. The story is very true to life, (I went through it with my son just like he does with his daughter.) So far only the first 2 seasons have made it to DVD and I check regularly to see if they have added more seasons.unfortunately they have only put it on DVD in PAL Zone 2. I had to buy a special DVD player so I could watch the ones they have put out. The local PBS station is not running again.
