  • Goodnight Sweetheart is a British sitcom that ran for six series on BBC1 from 1993 to 1999. The show returned on 2 September 2016, for a one-off special entitled Many Happy Returns. It starred Nicholas Lyndhurst as Gary Sparrow, an accidental time traveller who leads a double life after discovering a time portal allowing him to travel between the London of the 1990s and the same area during the Second World War. Lyndhurst had two co-stars portraying his wives in the two eras; both actresses were replaced in later series. His present-day wife was originally played by Michelle Holmes, replaced by Emma Amos; his 1940s 'sweetheart' was originally played by Dervla Kirwan, then replaced by Elizabeth Carling, who had an infant son with him – 'Michael' - whom he met in the 'present' as an adult, played by Ian Lavender. The show was created by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, also creators of Birds of a Feather and The New Statesman. The creators wrote the first series, while subsequent episodes were by a team of writers (including Marks and Gran). Although originally made for the BBC, the series has subsequently been repeated on ITV3, Gold, Drama, Yesterday and Forces TV on Sky Digital. For his starring role, Lyndhurst won the Most Popular Comedy Performer at the National Television Awards twice in 1998 and 1999. (en)
