    Musical puns

    Just noticed something - When Auntie Wainwright's lads are carrying the roll of lino out of her shop. There's a snatch of music from the Ken Dodd hit song - "Love is like a violin". I suddenly realised the last four letters of "Violin" rearranged, spell "Lino". Is this sheer coincidence, or did...

    Broken leg ?

    Just notice something amiss - I watched The Self-propelled Salad Strainer last night....... Nora was visiting someone to care for them as they had a "Broken leg". But when we see Nora tending to the woman, she's got a broken ARM. Maybe someone has noticed this before, but I couldn't find a...

    A forty-year-old error

    Just discovered that in "The Flag and further snags", I hadn't been laughing at Ronald Frazer at all - It was some bloke called Robert Lang. All this time, I've been mistaken. Was it only ME, or has anyone else made this mistake ? - I should have read the credits back in the 70's.

    Tom Owen in earlier LOSW ?

    Did Tom Owen appear in earlier episodes than "From here to Paternity", apart from his well known brief speaking part in "Situations Vacant" ? - I ask because a website I looked at today, mentioned a number of brief appearances in the show, both speaking and non-speaking. Was he lurking in the...

    A question about Aladdin Gets on Your Wick

    Specifically, about the old van that Smiler drives, dressed in his Chinese costume. Does anyone know the make of the vehicle ? - I've never seen one. The sliding doors (especially the REAR sliding door) are unusual.

    Found location for Deviations with Davenport

    Well, I think I have......... The scene in Deviations with Davenport where the trio have got themselves lost, and are standing by a ruined old cottage by a farm where they get chased off by a dog. The same location as was used in a scene in "The only Diesel-powered Saxophone.........". Correct...

    Missing Episode

    I've just begun playing disk 4 of the boxed set - Series 23 and 24. There appears to be an episode that's listed on the box rear, but it's missing from the actual disk ! - The episode - "Beware of the Hot Dog". Has anyone else noticed this - or is it a glitch on my particular copy ?

    A filming location question

    I now have a pretty extensive list of the shooting locations for LOSW - But one particular location still eludes me - That is the short section of canal and a bridge that has been seen in a number of episodes, for instance - in "Just a Small funeral" - where the Truly and Clegg are seen at a...

    Some Familiar Faces in All Gas and Gaiters

    I'm working my way through a boxed set of All Gas and Gaiters....... And was pleasantly surprised to see Joe Gladwin pop up as a taxi driver and in a later episode, Dudley Jones ("Shinyglow") as a choir-master. There may be more to come. The show is pretty good, if a little tame compared to LOSW.

    All Mod Conned - A question.

    I have just watched "All Mod Conned". If you recall, that's the episode where the trio trudge along an endless road to discover their holiday cottage is an old wrecked caravan. I'd always assumed that the location for this episode was Spurn Head on the Humber Estuary. But interestingly, the...

    John gorman in LOSW ?

    Just been watching one of my least favourite LOSW episodes - "A Quiet Drink". I noticed, in the pub, sitting with a group of men having a drink, someone who looks a dead ringer for John Gorman - I'm talking about John Gorman, the poet and musician, ex Scaffold. Can anyone confirm this ?

    I Didn't Know You Cared revisited

    I'm just watching the entire set of "I Didn't Know You Cared" again....... only for the 2nd time. The first viewing of it must have been over fifteen years ago. I wasn't too keen the first time around, but upon the re-viewing I've warmed to it. Surprising how many actors in this show also...

    Seymour's Design for a garage, or maybe Wesley's ?

    Has anybody besides me spotted the block of garages in Holmfirth that could only have been designed by Seymour or Wesley ? - It's a block of four or five garages with up-and-over doors, with another block of identical garages ON TOP of them. No ramp or any way of driving a car into the upper...
