There are quite a lot of characters in the story, many of them occupying a rather run-down block of flats in Pimlico that gives its name to the series . We are introduced to William French, a wine merchant who has just turned fifty, but who is in denial about that. He is a widower with a dreadful son , Eddie, who sees no reason to leave a comfortable home and set up independ ently, in spite of every encouragement by his father. William is admired by Marcia, a caterer who would like to marry him--or anybody really. William lives at the top of the building. On the floor below is a shared fl at lived in by four young women. One of these, Dee, runs a vitamin and heal th food shop not far away and is a keen exponent of alternative medicine in its various guises, and in particular of colonic irrigation. Then there is Caroline, who is studying for a master's degree in fine art at the Sotheby 's Institute of Art. Caroline is fond of James, who is doing the same course as she is. James is very artistic, with a particular interest in the work of the French artist, Nicolas Poussin. James likes Caroline a great deal, but is unsure as to what his real proclivities are. Caroline is optimistic that she can confirm him in the direction she would like him to take, that is as one who is interested in women, but will she succeed?
