Childhood sweethearts Alan and Celia, now both in their 70s, both retired, and both widowed, are reunited after being convinced to join Facebook by their grandchildren. After their encounter, Alan and Celia find that they're still as in love as they were as teenagers in the 1950s. They become engaged and make plans to be married.

The couple's story is not the only one told in this series. Alan's daughter Gillian holds a part-time job in a supermarket and runs a farm. She is a widow; her abusive husband died several years ago. She's been struggling simply to stay afloat ever since. Though she's happy for her father, she's worried about what might happen to her son when Alan leaves and takes the support he's been providing with him.

Celia's daughter is Gillian's polar opposite. Caroline is an Oxford graduate who leads a successful career as a headmistress. Caroline is not without her problems, however. Her husband John recently left her for someone else. Now he's back and wants a second chance. Meanwhile, Caroline is struggling with depression and strange feelings for a female coworker.

  • Ted and Harrison go on an adventure, Gillian is pushed to a breaking point at the farm, and Caroline finds herself at the heart of an unlikely love triangle. Alan and Celia find reason to laugh together again, but sobering news awaits them at home.

  • There's chaos at the bungalow as work begins to strip out the old kitchen. Alan's new supermarket job brings an unexpected challenge in the form of Harrison, and an overburdened Celia is called upon to travel by bus. Caroline has cause to question how people see her, and the giraffe continues to torment Gillian, who is pushed to her wits' end by the return of PC Cheryl.

  • Celia is quick to apologize for causing a scene, but with Alan seeking excitement outside the bungalow and Celia seeking it within, their relationship comes under increasing strain. Questions are raised when Ted arrives from overseas with a lifetime's worth of luggage and two young New Zealanders, Mia and Alyssa, in tow.

  • Alan and Celia are seven years into their marriage, and, having moved into a desirable bungalow with stunning views across the Calder Valley, they aren't seeing eye to eye. Celia is baffled when Alan applies for a job in a local supermarket, and Alan can't understand why they need an expensive new kitchen.

  • Conclusion. Caroline tells Gillian the truth about why she took the new headship. Gillian's mounting guilt over Eddie's death drives her to make a major decision. On the night of Celia's play, a twist of fate means Alan is forced to confront his fears.

  • Part 1 of 2. Caroline's new headship involves moving the family to a ramshackle farmhouse in time for Christmas. Alan has a difficult conversation with Gillian, who's consumed by thoughts of the afterlife, convinced she's being haunted by Eddie.
