    intro to anty wainwright

    Her debut episode Crums was the perfect showcase for the character in my opinion - it's also a brilliant (Christmas) episode.

    Eli woods and James Casey........why ???????

    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.

    Yawning

    The thread is dying. Can we make it easier, and list all the times that Compo has yawned??

    Simpsons Plagiarism?

    RIP Tom Owen

    Tragic news, didn't see that coming. I particularly liked Tom's energy when he first appeared in the show, when he was a bit of a wide boy, always up to some kind of scam.

    Where did Ivy cook?

    We do see Ivy at home again - preparing for Compo's funeral in Just a Small Funeral. In Small Tune on a Penny Wassail, I don't think Clegg was actually living at the location near the church/cafe. The continuity of where locations are in real life don't always seem to thought about in the...

    Where did Ivy cook?

    Actually, when you look at the interior cafe set, in some series there is a door to the extreme left, just left of the cafe customers door, which would lead to adjoining property. I don't think ever see that door open. The scene I believe you are talking about, an outside scene, where Eli...

    Wooden toy ideas from LOTSW??!

    I was also going to say the submarine, which is fondly remembered by many. There was bicycle with the big drill on it, so when you peddle you can drill for water - that one should keep you busy.

    Where did Ivy cook?

    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 factors which tell us this is never going to be a real, efficient...
