Sitcom After Henry focused on three female generations of the same family live together in a large Edwardian detached house.

The series had first appeared on radio (34 episodes between 17 April 1985 and 6 March 1988), the main cast was the same with the exception of Gerry Cowper playing the role of Clare.
