Fresh Fields Full Episode Guide

  • Always eager to support a good cause, Hester trains for a charity bike ride to Brighton. She approaches the task with her usual can-do attitude. The only thing in doubt is her pedal power.

  • Hester invites her daughter's in-laws to dinner while they are visiting from the country. Her offer to have them spend the night turns into an extended stay, and William plots the Fields's escape.

  • Hester's imagination runs wild when William arrives home from the office reeking of perfume. He offers her a perfectly innocent explanation, but Hester continues to smell a rat.

  • William's business worries are keeping him up at night. For a change of pace, Hester takes him on a short cross-Channel trip. William finds it equally hard to sleep in France, although for entirely different reasons.

  • Hester appears on the television program Antiques Roadshow along with a reluctant William and a valuable vase. Though she enjoys the limelight, Hester finds her TV appearance may also have drawn the attention of the criminal world.

  • Hester lobbies the head of the local council about the need for an old people's home. When a petition in support of the home fails to convince him, Hester resorts to more covert measures to get her point across.

  • William's snoring is keeping Hester up at night, and her days are far from restful after she agrees to take care of a neighbor's highly strung dog. As William quickly discovers, he has a major role to play in solving both problems.

  • Hester thinks she and William need to lose weight-and insists that he give up alcohol for Lent and cut back on his calories. For William, it's the equivalent of a starvation diet, and soon the only thing being lost is his temper.

  • The Fields get to watch their new grandson overnight. But Hester finds herself overextended when she also volunteers to deliver a meal to an elderly neighbor. To William's dismay, the police get involved.

  • William has been burning the candle at both ends while entertaining a potential client and trying to secure a new business deal. Hester gets a business deal of her own; unfortunately, it threatens to upset his.

  • Hester tells William it's time for a change in the bedroom-specifically, to the decor. For once resisting the temptation to do it herself, she decides to call in a professional. But shortly after he starts the job, the decorator wishes she hadn't.
