More than a year later, I found this post. Hope it's not too late to chime in. It's too difficult to pick just one episode, but the ones that are the most memorable for me are the trilogy honoring Compo's passing: Elegy For Fallen Wellies, Surprise at Throstlenest, and Just a Small Funeral. Those three shows were filled with bittersweet, humorous touches. The cars, accompanied by Marina on her bicycle, traveling up the road to see the living "See ya Compo" sign, brought me close to tears; Nora talking about the smile on Compo's face, Barry giving the middle finger (an obscene gesture) to the bike rider, and Reggie Unsworth bringing up the rear of the funeral procession on her tractor, were laugh out loud funny. There was such a blend of emotion in those three episodes, and they made for a great tribute to Bill Owen.
