BritCom Q&A

AS TIME GOES BY

Is there a fanclub/web site for As Time Goes BY? I love the writing and acting in this show and miss it terribly.

The Web site (by a fan) at http://atgbcentral.com has tons of information--almost every article and photo of Judi Dench that is available plus much more. It would take days to read everything there. There is a search function, which helps one find information about the various actors, etc. It's the most thorough site that we've found that is still active and constantly updated.

In what city is this filmed?

A source confirmed that the exteriors are filmed in London, but the producers haven't released the exact locations in order to protect the property owners. The Hardcastle country home is in Hampshire, but those owners also do not want the exact location to be revealed. Most of the interiors are studio sets.

LAST OF THE SUMMER WINE

What happened to Brian Wilde who played Foggy?

In 1997, just prior to filming new episodes, he was taken ill and could not continue, so Frank Thornton (Truly) was brought into the series on very short notice--and has stayed. Mr. Wilde has since recovered.
