"As Time Goes By"

I have recently begun watching this British sitcom starring Judi Dench and Geoffrey Palmer. As Time Goes By is about these two characters who met and fell in love in the 1950s. They're separated after he is sent to fight in Korea and the letter he wrote to her never arrived. They meet again 38 years later, she is a widow and he is divorced.

So the plot of the sitcom, which ran from 1992 to 2005, is based on the letter that never arrived and the lives that were potentially changed because of it.

I was introduced to this series by pen pal, Christi, who mentioned it in one of her letters. Finding a new television series is always fun, but finding one that was on the air for 13 years is like hitting the jackpot! I go online and order the seasons as they are available at my local library. I've also recently discovered Monk, so between these two shows, I should be good to go for awhile.

This show is always good. I have seen most of the shows with my English father but still enjoy it when I watch it. The best is that the two main characters are really married when they filmed this. I like that they could share a story together as actors before he passed.

Oh, Jackie--I just found your blog and was so thrilled to see the photo of the "As Time Goes By" cast!! I love this show and I've been a fan for many years when I first found it on PBS. I loved it so much that I even bought the complete DVD set. Yay! :) I hope you've been enjoying it!
