Caroline Aherne exited the show following the third series in 2000, wishing to move on to new projects. It was thought that it would continue in spite of Aherne's absence, but Ricky Tomlinson also quit the series, to ensure that it did not continue without creator and co-star Aherne's input. Both Aherne and Tomlinson returned in 2006 for the special "The Queen of Sheba", which Aherne co-wrote. See more »
Now and then comes along a perfect series (Fawlty Towers and The Office spring to mind) everybody loves them and everybody is right!! Any great show is built on the writing and the writing here is near perfect. Any show which can run over 18 episodes and 2 specials and only use 1 set AND be funny every time is genius!! Caroline Aherene has been quoted as saying this is her best work and she is right. Tha acting is the icing on the cake of course, with special mention to Sue Johnson who should get loads of work. The whole point is the exquisite, REAL language and very few visual gags. This looks and feels real all the time and runs through all human emotion; ultimately 'though it is a show about love. 11 out of 10!!!
