Tim and Pru follow the ancient route of the Vikings, visiting Stockholm and the nearby islands of its archipelago.
Timothy West and Prunella Scales conclude their latest series of boat journeys with a trip down the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal, one of Britain's most picturesque waterways. The couple return to some of the scenes of their early lives together and also revisit the start of their acting careers in an episode that also serves as a tribute to William Shakespeare. Accompanied by Tim's daughter and her family, they travel through the gentle Warwickshire countryside and cross the longest aqueduct in England. When they reach Stratford-upon-Avon, they visit the Royal Shakespeare Company, before putting on a performance at the church where Shakespeare is buried.
