Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   "As Time Goes By" has been a respite from the realities of life for countless people all around the world. An all-too-brief but much anticipated and  appreciated dose of warmth and humor and hope and love. Jean and Lionel represent the good in us all -- whatever our age or background or geography.

We want to thank everyone associated with the show for touching our lives in such a positive and enjoyable manner. Perhaps, as you read the following messages, we'll be able to -- in some small way -- touch your lives as well.
We will always remember this show ...
and you ...

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   As time goes by, when I need gentle wit,
Great writing and great acting, I can see
Nine welcome seasons of Bob Larbey's scripts
And watch a show of timeless quality.

Fine art can carry us across wide seas,
Uplift us, comfort, strengthen and sustain;
A drizzly day in Holland Park can free
Our spirits to enjoy what seems mundane.

As pebbles cast in ponds make widening waves,
So have our circles grown with friends, increased
As well by actors, films, poems and plays;
All done so well, the greatest and the least.

As long as we have sun and moon and sky
We'll send you all our thanks as time goes by.

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   When I read Dame Judi's comments about the only things really mentioned to her about "As Time Goes By" - Series 8 were the luggage and the dog, I felt very sad because this "sparkling" British comedy, is so much more than that.

To all (of you) involved in this show, thank you for your talents, skills and hard work.  "As Time Goes By" may no longer be in production, but it will continue to be one of the "Best of the British" comedies via VHS and DVD!  (My only regret is that we didn't see Jean and Lionel become grandparents,  but then, Mr. Larbey, could always write a one-hour Special now couldn't he?)

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   I enjoyed ATGB because it was a portrait of real people. The acting was excellent, the writing great and every episode special.
I was one of the American who came to the June 14th taping and it was everything I expected it to be. It was one of the special experiences of my life. I hope the PBS keep repeating this show for ever!

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   Thank you for a show which is innocent and decent. My husband and I can identify with Jean and Lionel, as we also found love and marriage late in life. We will miss everyone in the cast, as we have come to look on them as family. Thank goodness for tapes, as we can watch them at anytime, and will never do without "As Time Goes By". Blessings to Bob Larbey, Dame Judi, Geoffrey Palmer and everyone who made our favorite show so enjoyable.

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   Farewell to a gentle, loving and special show. Jean and Lionel's love showed a steadfastness and tenderness that never failed to warm the heart. It will be greatly missed.

Name:   Susan Clark Siefferman

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   Why? Pure quality from start to finish! ATGB has worn new grooves in my brain! What I see, hear and say is filtered through my ATGB brain cells. From the pulpit my pastor read the words of Scripture "I know who you are! You're the Son of God" .. but what I HEARD is "I know who you are; you're Cilla Black!" I read the story of Christ walking on the water when the disciples exclaim "It is a GHOST" ... but in my head I saw Jean on the sofa, looking through a photo album, raising her hand to her forehead and saying "It IS a ghost." To tell my employer I was retiring, I heard myself ask, "May I have a word with you," not "Can I talk to you." Jean's clipped "sorry?" finds its way into my conversation ... along with "I'd sooner not be included in that remark." I will forever hear Penny's distinct way of pronouncing the Broadway musical "Oklahoma." "Hey! Hey!" crops up occasionally, too. A glass of any beverage tends to become a "swift half" especially when I'm using my British Pub Mug. My refrigerator now contains HP Brown Sauce...and just this week I bought a sweater coat because I'm the same height as Dame Judi (tall and willowy!) and they look good on HER. These examples are just a FEW of the countless ways ATGB has affected my thoughts, words, and deeds. I thank you ALL ... writer, producer/director, actors, designers, crew .. for the great fun, pure joy and superb quality you've given us! Rock on!

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   As Time Goes By has always been one of my favourite sit-coms, mainly due to the sparkling chemistry between Geoffrey Palmer (who has always been one of my favourite actors) and Dame Judi.

Strange how Dame Judi thought the series was under appreciated as this and the various other ATGB sites must prove otherwise. I can't think of one person I know who didn't watch the last series and is saddened at it's end.

Come on guys, make a 10th series - you know you want to !!!

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   I can not begin to tell you why i like the show so much. It is too many to list. I can watch any episode and just get lost in your world. You had a great run and i wish you could make more episodes. But i want to thank the entire cast and crew for 10 great years and all the memories and friends that the show has created.

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   I wish I could live inside this show. The people in it have a certain ring of truth rarely seen in situation comedies. The stories seem to arise from who the characters are rather than from a plot device the producers seem to think an audience would want to see. Thanks to all for a show which doesn't patronize its audience or cater to a prevailing demographic, but rather gives us a picture of the way we would like to see ourselves.

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   The reasons I love this show are too numerous to name. JUDI DENCH & GEOFFERY PALMER are two big reasons why I keep coming back. Sorry to see it all end.

But then always I have my videos.

Cheers!
Rock On!
Farewell

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   Romance, friendship, loyalty, second chances, all of these words are woven into every episode of ATGB. For nine series I have laughed and cried with your show and I have enjoyed every minute of it.

The Hardcastles have become part of my family and Holland Park has become a safe place to visit when the pressures of home and work become too much. Ordinary situations, witty dialogue and superb acting combine to make the memories of each show last a lifetime.

"The world will always welcome lovers," and there will always be a place for quality shows like ATGB.

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   I love the romance, humor and chemistry between all the cast members but especially Dench and Palmer. This is without a doubt the best tv show ever produced. I've watched every re-run over and over and continue to giggle, sigh and glow. The videos are on my Christmas list and if Santa doesn't bring them then I'll buy them myself.
Well done! Please keep them coming.

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   Superb writing! Superb casting! Superb acting! What more can be said about this magnificent show. I live in the USA, and have lived in areas in which ATGB was not shown. I have only seen the first four seasons which I now have on tape and DVD. I'm 74 years old, therefore hope the remaining seasons are released very soon.

I have enjoyed Bob Larbey's writing in "ATGB", "A Fine Romance" and "Good Neighbors".

Dame Judi Dench is my most favorite actress of all times, and Geoffrey Palmer rates highly among my favorite actors. As for the remainder of the cast - they have all moved further up on my 'favorites' list.

To each and everyone associated with ATGB - thanks! You are marvelous!

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   Only superb acting can create the interest we have in this show. My wife and I see ourselves as Jean and Lionel in real life. So many of the situations, we have also done. Each episode makes the cast more a part of our family. After the first several episodes we find ourselves worrying about the girls just as we would our own. Mere words can never really show our gratitude. Thanks a million

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   I have enjoyed this series over and over in the reruns, never get tired of watching, notice new twists each time, and the actors are superb.  I now own all of Judi's movies and find that she is timeless, in fact they are all excellent.  Will miss not having new episodes on PBS.  Thank you all!!

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   Simply saying thank you for such a stupendous show, seems so inadequate; but thank you to the cast, crew, and writer for making such a fantastic show! It is by far the best on TV. I look forward to watching each week. You all have become family. I never tire of watching, and shall deeply miss not having new episodes to see. Thank heaven I have my videos and DVD's, so I can continue to get my ATGB "fix". My love and best wishes to all of you, especially Dame Judi!

Good Luck to all in your future endeavors and I will do my best to make sure I see them.

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   Watching ATGB is like gazing at a favorite painting or hearing a favorite piece of music--I am always, always uplifted, delighted, inspired, comforted, renewed, and reminded just how lovely and wonderful life can be. All the characters inspire affection, and since I never tire of hearing the theme song, even the names of the crew over the years have become familiar. Great writing, directing, and acting can't explain the appeal of this series; the whole is quite simply, somehow magically, greater than the sum of all its marvelous parts.

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   My kids (35 and 30) were over one time and I said that we'd have to take a break because my favorite program was on. They watched for a few minutes, turned to me and asked "but why?" And that's why. Because they don't understand and won't for another 30 years. But I do and that's what matters. Thank you for giving your audience an opportunity to share the experiences of two intelligent and romantic adults.

My husband, Jack, who has a brain disease, has been able to garner immense joy, watching this program. Each episode leaves him with a smile on his face. For this, I thank you profusely.

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   Many others have said it -- you've become friends, people we'd invite into the kitchen for a cup of coffee. We care about how you solve your problems, react to a crisis (real or imagined), get out of awkward situations, stack the dishwasher. Thanks to Bob Larbey's literate and lovely scripts and to a perfect ensemble cast -- who can imagine anyone else in these roles? -- we have happily shared your on-screen lives for 64 episodes. Obsessive? Absolutely not ... we just know a great thing when we see it. Best wishes to each of you in your professional and personal lives.

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   First of all I always loved British humor. It is so witty and well thought through in what is usually a fraction of a second.
And all this is executed by two geniuses, Judi Dench and Geoffrey Palmer.

I am going to miss this!  [:|]

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   ATGB has been a 'breath of fresh air' in television! The exquisite writing; the everyday situations; the realistic characters; and the superb acting by everyone can never be taken from us, even though the program has ended. When ever we hear the theme song and your voices, we realize that some things are 'right' in this world. God bless you all for the enjoyment you have given us!

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   A few years ago my mom passed away and I moved into my old home to help my dad out and keep him company. One Sat. evening he asked me if I would like to view a show that they used to enjoy. I will admit that I had never watched British comedy before and wasn't sure what to expect. Well after one episode I fell in love with As Time Goes By. For almost four years we watched it faithfully. This wonderful show brought my dad and I closer together. We would look forward to it each week. Last year he passed away. Now I have my sister watching it with me every Sat. Thank you to the cast and crew for presenting a program that can bridge three age groups. Good luck in all thing to come. Bless you all Gail Frayer

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   Aside from the fact that Judi Dench is my favorite actress and hero, the very person I want to be when I grow up, to me ATGB is just the most delightful show I know of. It projects real life situations, and does so in a most entertaining way. One of the few shows I will watch over and over, as I do not normally do reruns of any kind. Thanks so much for this production.

Why I enjoy watching ATGB:   Even though I've seen all of the episodes more than once, (apart from the final ones which haven't been broadcast here yet!) I never tire of watching ATGB. I feel as though the characters have become family members, or good friends. I would like all of the actors and behind-the-scenes people to know how much sheer joy and entertainment they have provided over the years. Thank you so much for your superb series.
