    There's lots of 'gag appearances' in LOTSW, such as Stan Laurel's daughter, Jim Bowen, John Cleese. I don't know if Roy intended that these celebrities should be included - it could be more likely that Alan JW Bell brought these people in.

    Like many of the stars in Summer Wine, Eli Woods and James Casey were Music Hall stars. They were cousins and appeared with Casey's father "Jimmy James" in his variety act, “Jimmy James and Co”. Casey was a comedy scriptwriter for...

    I think this is perhaps an example of where US & UK meaning of the word differ, I understand in the US it has legal connotations but in the UK I'd suggest its a more benign term meaning copying or imitating usually without harmful...

    Plagiarism is a pretty strong term to use. There actually aren't all that many successful plagiarism lawsuits when it comes to TV and movies, mainly because you can't really claim most of it as unique. For example, a lot of model...

    Yes, I realize that. By the definition given that is accurate but he is listing characters who appeared at least three times as well as regulars. I don't personally consider those who appeared a handful of times as having the same...

    Thanks for that list. In my mind I think of Jonathan Linsley/Crusher as the earliest appearing regular that is still around. As a minor note, Maggie Ollerenshaw did also show up in "The Flag and Further Snags" as the Commodore's...

    As far as I can see, of the principals and characters appearing at least 3 times, only the following are still with us... (* or only twice but deserve special mention) Gordon Simmonite - Philip Jackson Miss Probert - June Watson* Barry...

    Tom had been unwell for some time. He told me last month that he wasn't feeling great, but was 'struggling on'. Tom was a lovely and absolutely charming man. Very polite and likeable. As Graham says, a sad day.

    It was for sure used in Last Post and Pigeon.

    I think its supposed to be a different location in that episode based on a few clues. First, Sid mentions to Ivy that her relatives never come "down" (visit/patronize) to the cafe, which doesn't make sense if they are upstairs in the...

    Apparently, it also goes outside. In Mending Stuart's Leg, the trio & Sid were running through it from the rear to the front of the cafe.

    I think everywhere in your photos was supposed to be where all the cooking was done. Obviously it's all just a set (scenery) and not real - and space and budget is always an element, so we have use our imagination (or ignore the...

    Sarkus replied to the thread Last of the Summer Wine Magazine.
    The update on the bench reminds me of that fan funded statue of Compo project. Did anything ever happen with that? Last update I saw they had some sort of stella created (that nobody liked) and they were talking about putting it up...
