Barkworth played a bank manager, Mark Telford, who took a backward step in his career in order to retreat from the rat race. He relinquished his job in international banking and became a local branch manager in Dover.
Telford's wife Laura (played by Hannah Gordon) and son Peter (Michael Maloney) remained in London. Keith Barron played Tim Hart, Laura's theatrical colleague who was keen to have an affair with her, and with whom she did have a brief liaison. In order to win back his wife, Telford gave up the Dover job and returned to international banking.
The series was created and sold to the BBC by Barkworth himself and a group of colleagues (including Mark Shivas) through a company called Astramead.
Telford's Change consisted of only one series of ten episodes.
