Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Made for BBC television, After Pilkington stars Bob Peck as Westgate, a dullish Oxford academician. Upon being introduced to the wife of a new faculty member, Westgate discovers that young woman is Penny (Miranda Richardson), his childhood sweetheart. He remembers that Penny used to embroil him in adventures that threatened life and limb. Apparently nothing has changed, and before long Penny has inveigled Westgate into helping her locate a missing archaeologist named Pilkington. This sprightly comedy-mystery first aired in the US in October of 1987 over the A&E cable network.
