Between Season 4 Episode 10 and Season 5 Episode 1, the layout of the interior of the house changes. Formerly, standing inside the living room, there was a wall outside the living room door, which the door opened from the right. Now, the door opens from the left, the wall is gone and you are able to see the front door of the house from the living room. In Season 9, the door opens from the right again. See more »
Over the years, I have watched the odd episode of "As Time Goes By" ... but just recently I started watching this series on a regular basis, and can now understand why my husband would cut conversations short because he had to watch his favourite actress,Judi Dench, in "As Time Goes By." Now, I'm doing the same thing. Here in Canada, I have the chance to watch it every day. The antics of these two characters are wonderful to watch. I almost feel I'm a visitor in their home in England. I think my husband could have played the part of Lionel very well. In fact I've started calling him Lionel. These actors have good chemistry on the screen and it's hard to believe that they're just acting their parts. A great show!
