    Cecil B. DeDewhurst

    The only other time I have seen Nora with such a cheezy happy grin is when she was telling Wally that "OWER DUDLEY" was a "SCREAM". Wally on the other and just thought he was "A REAL DUDLEY".....he made Nora laugh.....and Wally laughed also "when he broke his leg"....I blame those terrible...

    RIP Tom Owen

    I think Barry's brilliant idea in the cafe really helped Tom's character develop and evolve......moving in with Smiler,combined with his "charity work" [remember...Aunty didn't pay either of them !!!!] at Aunty's enabled him to "become" Tom....to really put his own mark on the character.

    Which HAT would you pick?

    I would have picked Howard's cap...but it's got a spider in it !!!....and I do like the little pink number Compo was modelling in the window of the ladies dress shop...but I have chosen Nora's hat that looked amazingly like the loaf/cake Alvin was eating for breakfast......he even showed Billy...

    One of my favourite episodes !!...the introduction of the direct decendant of Robin Hood...on his mother's side...she were a Bristoe.....rotten drunk firing his arrow and hitting the sign outside The White Horse.....Nora all love struck because of Billy's resemblance to Robin Hood [I am afraid...

    12 Years ago

    The most wonderful thing about being an official "BARMPOT" is that there is no "final episode"......OUR SHOW just goes on and on...we never tire of a single series from 1 to 31 !!!!......it is always with us...and always remains a constant !!!.....a barrier and visual comfort blanket against the...

    Bad digs in Manchester.

    Manchester [or the aversion to it] has spread to our favourite "ladies coffee mornings"......remember....Glenda said Barry had never been further than Manchester...to which Ivy states "well no good ever comes out of going to Manchester"........and that is followed by Pearl's accusation that "...

    Brian genuinely seemed to be really enjoying himself in his role..... He particularly shone when he was verbally jousting with Nora......I think he is the only character [or person we did not even see !!!] that actually got the better of her from time to time...he always said she was...

    ..but he usually did, as soon as Nora was mentioned.

    When the intoxicated "Captain Zero" was dragged to the cells by our favourite boys in blue our scruffy hero said "I'm not dooin' it !!!"....but realising that he would be getting accosted by lovely ladies [especially Nora] he agreed to become "Captain Zero mark 2".....he got to kiss the...
