A great show, much missed!
24 November 2006 | by (London, England, UK) – See all my reviews

Goodnight Sweetheart was a highly entertaining comedy that used a sci-fi plot device as its driving force. However, the heart of show was always Gary Sparrow's(Lyndhurst) interaction with the historical events occurring around him. Gary's endearing best friend Ron(played by Victor McGuire) was one of my favourite characters. As the time-travel takes place during the six years of World War 2,(in parallel with the 90s) it was always inevitable that the show would end after the war had fully played out. Gary's relationship with his wives in both eras was never easy, adding an element of drama to the show.

I miss this show greatly as it was always funny and a delight to watch. The brilliance of this comedy was always underrated in my opinion.

I love this show!
