Interesting facts


+ UK telly addicts will have seen Rachel Shelley appear in a series of commercials, including the Wella sponsorship ad that preceded the first showing of the fifth season of Friends on Sky One and Channel 4.
+ Despite elevating Peter Wingfield's and Elizabeth Gracen's names to the opening credits, neither actually appear in the show until the last three episodes of the season.
