* The eponymous InspectorLynley [[YouCalledMeXItMustBeSerious almost]] universally called his partner, Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers, either 'Sergeant' or 'Havers' while on duty. It's not until the last produced episode of the show that he switches to calling her 'Barbara' on a regular basis, only calling her 'Havers' when he is cross with her; this marks a significant shift in their relationship. (Havers, however, calls him nothing but 'Sir', relying on tone to get her point across, as he is both her social and professional superior.)

* In ''Series/WolfHall'', Thomas Cromwell is almost always Cromwell, and if it's someone who's close (or Henry in affectionate mode) it's shortened to Crumb. The only person in his professional life who routinely called him Thomas was his mentor and ParentalSubstitute, Cardinal Wolsey.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/MurdochMysteries'':
** Murdoch will occasionally address Constables Crabtree and Higgins by their first names, but he generally addresses others as "Constable" or by their surnames (such as "Jackson" or "Hodge"). This seems to denote the closer relationships he has with them, particularly in Crabtree's case. Rank may also have something to do with it, since he never uses Inspector Brackenreid's first name, but always either uses "Sir" or Brackenreid's title. Brackenreid always calls his detective "Murdoch" or the endearing phrase "me old mucker" and never uses "William".
** Detective Murdoch and Dr. Ogden tend to address and refer to each other by their titles in professional settings when strangers are involved or on business matters, and they revert to first names when discussing personal matters. Among other things, Murdoch seems sensitive to the need to underline the coroner's professional credentials for people who might be wondering what a woman is doing asserting authority at a crime scene.
** The first time Dr. Grace is giving Murodch a briefing (with Dr. Ogden), she notices Murdoch calls her mentor "Julia" and he corrects himself. Julia doesn't seem to mind.
** Murdoch is observing Crabtree interrogating a culprit near the end of "War on Terror" (a first for the constable) when Dr. Grace stops by and joins him at the window. She calls George by his first name, and it's Murdoch's turn to notice the sudden familiarity. Later in the morgue, she tells George to call her "Emily" and they discuss the meanings of her first name.
