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 Gary is struck by lightning as he passes through the time portal in 1945, two clones of him suddenly appear - a selflessly good Gary and a pathologically evil Gary. The suave evil duplicate begins causing a stir in both of Gary's lives, yet while Yvonne and Ron prefer Gary's evil alter ego, Phoebe is alienated by his aloof behaviour.
In 1999, a depressed Gary moves in with Ron after Yvonne kicks him out of their penthouse flat. Ron, who has problems of his own, has lied to his new girlfriend and claimed that he's incredibly rich. Things aren't going much better in 1945 either, Phoebe has become convinced that Gary is having an affair with another woman after he accidentally calls her Yvonne.
Both of Gary's wives have their hearts set on starting new lives in California, but Gary knows he can't live that far from the time portal and must find a way to dissuade Phoebe and Yvonne from such drastic life changes. Meanwhile, in 1945, Reg is forced into retirement from the police force and is extremely disheartened when nobody turns up for his leaving party.
In 1945, Phoebe and Gary are offered parts in Noël Coward's new film, Brief Encounter. However, worried that he might be recognised in the 1990s, he immediately backs out, which greatly angers Phoebe.

When Gary travels the wrong way from the 1940s he finds himself in Victorian London, where Jack the Ripper is on the loose, and discovers the prolific murderer has been using the backyard of his shop to hide from the police.
When a workman named Sparks appears in Gary's shop, he announces that he's there to check on a problem with the time portal that could result it its permanent closure. Forced to finally make a choice between his two lives, Gary decides his his priorities lie in 1945 with Phoebe and his son. He leaves the shop to Ron, who promptly sells the entire stock on credit to a teenager from the future.
In 1945, Gary and Phoebe join a concert party in Belgium to entertain the troops, but a sudden a sudden advance by the Germans leaves them stranded behind the lines. Meanwhile, in 1999, Gary thinks Yvonne might be having an affair and recruits Ron to spy on her while he's away.
In 1999 Ron has been dumped by his girlfriend Flic and has become extremely depressed, but Gary is distracted by the bulling tactics of a protection racket in 1945 and his attempts to get them arrested. Meanwhile, Yvonne is preparing to accept her peerage, but on the night she is due to unveil her statue at the Millennium Dome, she receives a rude surprise.
Yvonne is reading a biography of Noël Coward and when Gary realises it contains a picture of him in the 1940s, he must take drastic action to ensure his time travelling isn't exposed in the 1990s. Meanwhile, Ron accidentally books a singles holiday with amorous old ladies, and a recently discovered Noël Coward play, Gary & Phoebe, catches Yvonne's eye.
When Yvonne witnesses Gary go through the time portal, and the finds a picture of Gary and Phoebe from the 1940s, she's not satisfied with Gary's answer and demands the truth.
