This sequel to the 1998 British miniseries Coming Home was set in Nancherrow, the decaying family estate of the Carey-Lewis clan. Slapped with inheritance taxes, an ever-changing government, and an assortment of personal tragedies (including a bout with polio), heroine Diana Carey-Lewis (Joanna Lumley) somehow managed to persevere, though her obsessive attachment to her ancestral home caused the utter ruination of her relationship with her rebellious daughter (played by Katie Ryder Richardson). Worth noting is the fact that the huge and distinguished cast included Patrick MacNee, Joanna Lumley's former costar on The Avengers. Adapted from the novel by Rosemund Pilcher, the two two-hour installments of Nancherrow were telecast by ITV on April 4 and 5, 1999.
