The opening credits for series 1 featured David Ryall's name alongside the other main actors. This disappeared from series 2 onwards due to his character (Eric) being written out between series 1 and 2, having been killed in an air raid.
However, when Gary walks past the first Screen 1 sign in the opening credits, you can tell that it still has Ryall's name on it, despite the second Screen 1 sign changing. See more »

This popular BBC sitcom ran for six series from 1993 until 1999. There was an additional episode in 2016.
Nicholas Lyndhurst stars as Gary - a television repairman in present- day London. He's unhappily married to Yvonne. He finds a portal to the early 1940s, where he lives a double life with pub landlady Phoebe.
In the first three series, Michelle Holmes plays Yvonne and Dervla Kirwan plays Phoebe. From then onwards, Emma Amos plays Yvonne and Elizabeth Carling plays Phoebe. Replacing Kirwan with Carling was a big mistake. Carling's portrayal of Phoebe is inferior and unbelievable - in addition to looking and sounding different, she has a different personality.
