When Charley Charleton first arrived at the Larkin farm in Kent, it was with the intention of finding out why Pop Larkin had never paid any income tax. By and by, Charley fell madly in love with Larkin's eldest daughter Marette. This premise was laid out in a series of comic novels by H. E. Bates, which served as the basis of the American theatrical feature The Mating Game (1959) and the British TV sitcom The Darling Buds of May. "Oh! To Be in England" is an episode from the latter project. In this installment, Pop Larkin comes to terms with being a grandfather, while younger daughter Primrose is entranced by a visiting New Yorker. The cast of Darling Buds of May includes David Jason, Pam Ferris, Philip French and Catherine Zeta Jones.
