Ria Parkinson is a bored housewife married to a dull dentist and mother to two bickering teenage sons. When she meets a wealthy businessman who woos her, she wonders--should she, or shouldn't she? This bittersweet Britcom was revolutionary for its time (the late 1970s). Wendy Craig (The Forsyte Saga) is Ria, Geoffrey Palmer (As Time Goes By) her husband Ben, and Bruce Montague (Lillie) the tempting Leonard.
Editor's Note
The second series of BUTTERFLIES aired in 1979, and saw Wendy Craig returning as Ria Parkinson, a housewife looking for a way out of her dull existence. Although most viewers wouldn't think twice about such a conceit now, in the late '70s this was thought of as a radical concept for a sitcom, and BUTTERFLIES helped break down some gender stereotypes that were prevalent on British television at the time. Ria lives with her husband, Ben (Geoffrey Palmer), and two teenage sons, Russell (Andrew Hall ) and Adam (Nicholas Lyndhurst, who later found fame in ONLY FOOLS AND HORSES). Ben toils away as a dentist and can't understand his wife's discontent--after all, he has a job and a decent income, while many around them are floundering. Meanwhile, Ria attempts to stave off the attentions of Leonard (Bruce Montague), who aims to tempt her away from her boring life. The entire second series of the show is collected here.
