In Reckless, Owen Springer (Robson Green) is a young doctor who has just moved to Manchester to take care of his demanding, hypochondriac father. The last thing he is looking for is an affair...until he meets Anna (Francesca Annis). However, there are two obstacles on Owens path to happiness with Anna--she is several years older, and she is married. Undaunted, Owen sets out to charm her, and just when hes beginning to get somewhere, hes hit with a bombshell. Annas husband is his new boss at the hospital.
In Reckless: The Sequel, Anna has divorced her husband, Richard (Michael Kitchen), and Anna and Owen have made an impetuous decision to marry--at the end of the week. The idea is to have the ceremony while Richard is out of the country, but he hears of their plans and flies back to England. Still in love with Anna, he is determined to save her from what he sees as a potentially disastrous marriage. Will Anna actually marry Owen?

Reckless charts the shifts and upsets of this love triangle--the tone ranges from light comedy to something bordering on Fatal Attraction. It starts slowly, but the second and third parts grow steadily more intricate, suspenseful, and torrid. Bad behavior is on ample display, acted with verve by the cast. The sequel is actually more fun than the original six-hour series; it's only a single two-hour episode, but it takes a more full-bodied satirical approach that doesn't prevent some heart-wrenching turns. Almost all of the original cast return, with a variety of new characters--including Geoffrey Palmer (As Time Goes By) as Richard's father. --Bret Fetzer

And FYI, all of the episodes ARE included in the DVD set. The set includes 4, 2-hour DVDs (3 of the series and 1 of the sequel).
The love story may be central to the plot, but the adventures of Anna and Owen touch the lives of their relatives, friends and business associates in unexpected ways. The settings range from city, to lush countryside to a working man's neighborhood and pub, to a bustling hospital. There's lots of action as well as some incredibly steamy love scenes.
Reckless is a series to watch more than once. I never tire of revisiting Anna and Owen and all the other characters.
Don't miss this. Share it. Watch it again. And have the best time.
I suggest to those who have already purchsed a set without the middle to purchase it from a local vendor and not on line. This is safer.

I liked this story about a May/December romance. Although made a few decades ago, it felt oddly contemporary. I wanted more, a realistically portrayed fantasy.Published 15 months ago by city girl
