Trivia / As Time Goes By

  • Character Outlives Actor: Joan Sims (Madge) passed away before the final series was filmed. She was written out as being away on an expedition Rocky was uninterested in, and she simply wasn't mentioned in the Reunion Special.
  • I Want You to Meet an Old Friend of Mine: In Tomorrow Never Dies Judi Dench's M interacts (in a distinctly unfriendly manner) with an Admiral played by Geoffrey Palmer. Judi Dench and Geoffrey Palmer have worked together frequently, notably in several Shakespeare plays. Palmer also co-starred in Dench's movie Her Majesty Mrs. Brown.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • Daisy was played by a different actress after she was reinstated as Lionel's secretary.
    • The original Harry was unavailable for the reunion special as well.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: Given that much of the humor is driven by Jean and Lionel's reaction to the changes in the younger generation, this was bound to happen. Scenes in the office are now notable for the lack of computers on the desk, and among the things used to show Alastair as unorthodox and flash are his use of a cellphone and enjoyment of sushi.
