They first meet during a party at the insistence of Laura's younger sister, Helen, and Mike's sweet, inept and endearing character sparks something in the bossy, stubborn, big-softy Laura. They never quite hit it off, but there's something there that keeps them together. Written by Len Massaar.
Few series have more ably depicted the complicated communication between two people from different backgrounds who are trying to forge a relationship. Mike and Laura start out associating by accident and then by design. Laura is prickly and easily offended. Mike is well-intentioned but inarticulate. Laura is an intellectual with strong family ties especially to her long-suffering sister.
Mike is a landscaper with no family to speak of. They both feel like outsiders looking in most of the time. This series details their mutual yearnings and blunderings in a warm and humorous manner.
A Fine Romance: Where are they Now?
By the end, I wanted terribly for these two awkward people to get together. A sign of a successful series. Good acting, good writing, and good supporting characters. Highly recommended.

If, like me, you buy DVD sets for the show and not for special features or commentary then this is an ideal set. There are no commentaries, subtitles, or special features on these discs. The main attraction is the only attraction - episodes of the show itself: a love story between an attractive middle-aged, smart but childish almost-spinster and a socially awkward, middle-aged struggling landscape gardener. I give the story, acting and dialogue five stars.
I almost took one star off for the DVDs because the main menu has the theme song on a loop.
Sometimes I like to go get popcorn before sitting down to watch, and hearing the theme song on a loop gets irritating! I recommend this product if you are a fan of the divine Judi Dench and appreciate older British comedies or are a fan of the equally delightful As Time Goes By. Also recommended if you are a fan of mature, non-cliched and un-sappy love stories.
Almost like the precursor for the more well known "As Time Goes By" the other British Comedy , if you love the latter, you'll most probably feel the same way about the former. A bit less polished in production and obviously less expensively staged, the outstanding talents of Dame Judi and her real-life husband Michael Williams playing her love-interest made the outcome warm and cozy and sooooooooo funny.
Sooooooooooo human. They both play ish single people who are looking for a relationship. They are brought together and the series goes on to watch their love grow, through sad times and happy ones. Some reviewers might say the series is "dated," but I see it as nostalgic. I had never even heard of the series when I found it listed on Amazon.
I am simply dedicated to Dame Judi and her wide spectrum of work that it was a wonderful discovery and I was overjoyed to find this early vehicle. Yeah, I'm a fan of Dame Judi. What's not to like? It's a Fine Romance I waited a long time before I decided to buy this series ok about half a year and then I read a review from somewhere that said "Hurry up and buy this series before they stop selling it, because it is an older comedy". I took heed to this possible over reaction and bought the series. When I started watching "A Fine Romance" I honestly thought to myself had I made a mistake in purchasing it sorry because it did seem kind of lame.
BUT then Judi Dench saved it by her magnetism. Judi is the kind of actress who can take a project and make it her own, like this one. After a couple more episodes I actually started to really enjoy this series. Judi's real life husband who plays her on and off again love interest Michael Williams is just as much fun to watch as Judi. So to anyone who buys this series, I just want to say give it a run through before making any quick assumptions.
My total view changed after I fisnished the series and I now enjoy it. Watching Judi and Michael together is really nice. I can't put A Fine Romance in quite the same category with As Time Goes By, but it's extremely enjoyable, and in fact I wish they had done more seasons. I find it's certainly worth watching, and I admit I've watched the series more than once. Fans of Judi Dench will enjoy seeing her performing with the actor who was in fact her real-life husband now deceased , and enjoy seeing her in her younger days.
