It is based on the 1989 book Diana's Story by Deric Longden, who co-wrote the script with Jack Rosenthal. It tells the story of his marriage to his wife, Diana, who contracts a chronic, degenerative illness that medical officials were unable to understand at the time (now believed to be Myalgic Encephalomyelitis). As Diana's health faltered, she secretly set him up with another woman to help ease his pain over her eventual death. A sequel, Lost for Words dealing with Longden's mother's decline into dementia after his second marriage, followed in 1999.
