BritCom Q&A

AS TIME GOES BY

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.
