In Season 2 Episode 4, Lionel tells Jean that Alistair is looking after him like a baby because he is "a favor" - Alistair's father borrowed £500 from Lionel's father in 1947 to start a publishing firm. In Season 5 Episode 3, Alistair approaches Lionel with a book for Lionel to adapt in to play or film. Alistair tells Lionel he "snapped up the rights" per his publishing company. Later in the episode, Lionel finds out that Alistair's father bought the rights in 1932. The publishing firm wasn't created until 1947. 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!
