    The Diary of Norman Clegg

    The nearest we got to the Clegg Diaries was Summer Wine Country by Roy Clarke. I would love there to be another Summer Wine novel, if only to finish the story of Norman Clegg.

    I think I remember that, excellent stuff.

    Yes, it definitely counts, thanks.

    The Diary of Norman Clegg

    Catching the passing moment - I was trying to think of that phrase.

    The Diary of Norman Clegg

    Definitely the subject of a new novel, should one ever happen. But how many times in the show did we see Clegg writing bits in his diary? From time to time we would see him jotting things down. Can anyone name the episodes this occurred, and if possible, what was happening at the time?

    Gentle Comedies

    I think most comedies before the mid 1990s were fairly gentle, or at least by today's standards. I don't think there is any place for excessive swearing on TV or at the cinema - it shows a lack of intelligence, and ruins a show which otherwise could be enjoyed by the whole family...

    The Café and Grime

    Partly inspired by the Café and Cigarettes topic. I like the early episodes where the café was a bit shabby - all this changed during Series Six. In Series Three the café is at it's shabbiest - it's really black with dirt and grime. Do we think the designer for Series Three over-did things...

    Jean Fergusson

    'Fergusson' indeed. That's what you might call a footballer (or manager!) or someone like that, but not an actress, especially under these circumstances. The press use a lot of inappropriate and even pointless words. Without going off topic, the press like to use the word 'bespectacled' - I...

    Get out of That Then - the beginning of the end?

    Dear John was adapted for America - I think it did reasonably well.
