Next Episode of Goodnight Sweetheart is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
Gary Sparrow is an underachieving TV repairman, unhappily married to the loud and often mocking Yvonne Sparrow. However, Gary's life is changed forever upon discovering a time portal taking him back to a war-torn London, leading to an East End pub (the Royal Oak) and an attractive barmaid named Phoebe, who becomes his girlfriend. From then on, Gary leads a double life, going back and forth across time to please the two women in his life closest to his heart, but furthest apart.
When Phoebe asks Gary to take Michael out for a nighttime stroll so she can get some rest, father and son are nearly killed by a bomb on Whitechapel Road. Thrown through the time portal by the blast, Gary is shocked to discover Michael has also arrived in 1998. Back in 1944, Phoebe is frantic with worry and resolves to move their family to a safer neighbourhood in the West End.
Gary is moving up the social ladder in both eras, though not particularly smoothly. In 1998, Yvonne has been invited to the Woman of the Year bash at 10 Downing Street but Gary is refused entry when nobody believes he's really her husband. In 1944, Phoebe experiences the sharp end of rejection when the local West End butcher refuses to serve her, as he deems her below the standards of his regular customers.
When an unexploded bomb detonates at the entrance to Duckett's Passage, the time portal between the 1940s and the 1990s is damaged and Phoebe unknowingly follows Gary through to 1998. Meanwhile, Reg receives a blow to the head that vastly increases his intelligence, and Gary enlists Ron to look after Phoebe in 1998 and keep her away from Yvonne.
With the time portal still haywire, Ron finally makes it back to the 1940s, where he inevitably makes Gary's life even more difficult. In 1998, Yvonne starts doing consultancy work for Chelsea FC, and much to Gary's delight, acquires some VIP match tickets.
Gary desperately needs more wartime five pound notes, but Mrs. Flanagan, Ron's new boss at the printing works, won't let the staff do private work. Desperately short of cash, Gary tries to use his knowledge of the future to bet on certainties at the 1940s race track with an illegal bookmaker. Meanwhile, in 1998, Ron is arrested for counterfeiting white fivers.
In the present day, Yvonne's career is going soaring high, and so is she, to multiple locations across the world every week. Meanwhile, while out for dinner with Phoebe in 1944, Gary' discovers his assumed identity as a secret agent has drawn the attention of MI5. In an effort to keep himself from a short meeting with a firing squad, Gary agrees to go on a secret mission to the Isle of Wight.
It doesn't take long fro Gary to realise that MI5 have tricked him, he's not on the Isle of Wight, he's stuck behind enemy lines in France. As the severity of the situation dawns on him, the Gestapo rapidly begin to close in, and Gary's survival is entirely reliant on the loyalty of a French double-agent named Celeste. In 1998, Ron is recruited by Yvonne to escort a a statuesque fashion model to the launch of a new Nature Boy product, but things don't quite go to plan.
After his unexpected trip to France in 1944, Gary's double life starts to take its toll, and he begins experiencing extremely realistic, highly disturbing dreams. To ease his sleep, Ron slips Gary a sleeping pill, but this results in a nightmare in which Yvonne and Phoebe have found out about each other.
As Gary gets Ron settled into the West End flat in 1998, he encounters the porter who tells him that in 1944 the owner of his flat was killed horribly in a road accident. Discovering Reg is still alive in the 1990s, Gary visits him to try and get more information. Meanwhile, Phoebe is struggling to balance taking care of Michael while running the Royal Oak, and Yvonne is celebrating the successful launch of her autobiography.
Michael Sparrow, now an adult who has spent time in prison and lives in a bedsit, arrives in Gary's shop to sell some of his mum's old things. Disturbed by his son's state, Gary returns to 1944 determined to do better by his son and turns to Noël Coward to help change Michael's fate.
