Fresh Fields, was a 1980s Sitcom, starring Julia McKenzie and Anton Rodgers, in the roles of Hester and William Fields, in Fresh Fields, William worked as an Accountant, and Hester worked part time at local Restaurant Lucy's Kitchen, Hester filled the rest of her time, with new interests and hobbies, Hester and William, lived in Barnes, London.
Also among the regular cast of Fresh Fields, were Sonia Barrett (Ann Beach) and Nancy Penrose (Fanny Rowe), Sonia lived next door to the Fields, and often popped round, to borrow items, from Hester and William, Sonia would always announce herself with the words - it's only Sonia (the Sitcom's only catchphrase), Nancy was Hester's mother, and lived near to Hester and William, Nancy was divorced from Hester's father Guy (Ballard Berkeley), who often tried to win Nancy back, Guy appeared in 10 episodes of Fresh Fields, Hester and William, had two children - Tom (who is never seen, and lives in New Zealand) and Emma (Debby Cumming), who (like Tom) is also never seen, but is often heard on the end of a telephone (speaking to either Hester or William), Emma is married to Peter (Philip Bird), who appeared in a few episodes.
Also among the cast of Fresh Fields, were Sonia's husband - John Barrett (John Arthur) and Miss Denham (Daphne Oxenford), who was William's secretary.
There were four series (27 episodes), of Fresh Fields, shown on ITV, from 1984-1986.
I can remember enjoying watching Fresh Fields (on ITV), in the 1980s, and have also enjoyed watching all the episodes, on DVD, more than once.
French Fields (which saw Hester and William, relocating to France), was the sequel to Fresh Fields, and was shown on ITV, from 1989-1991, there were three series of French Fields (19 episodes), I was never that keen on French Fields.
Fanny Rowe (who played Hester's mother Nancy), died in 1988, the year before French Fields, was first shown on ITV.
