From 1989 to 1992, he starred in the successful series Forever Green as the character Jack Boult.

Jack, a former racing driver and Harriet Boult, a nurse, live in a London flat with their two children Freddy and Tom. Freddy suffers from asthma which Harriet believes could be due to the city pollution, and after a serious attack begins to think leaving the city could be the best treatment available. Soon after, a letter arrives advising Harriet of an inheritance from one of her old patients, a run-down house in the country. It only takes one visit to persuade them to move.
The 18 episodes contain plots dealing with their adapting to life in the country and touches on environmental themes, alternative healing and alternative lifestyle choices.
