    Compo's Glory Hole Siren

    In "The Glory Hole" episode (series 16) broadcast today on UKTV channel "Gold", Compo finds a portable hand operated (air raid) siren. It looks authentic, but what makes me suspicious is the mesh covering the middle part does look like plasticised wire fencing. I know authentic sirens were made...

    PC Coopers Divorce

    Please tell me I'm not imagining things. I am sure I recall PC Cooper tells Walsh he is sleeping in the spare bedroom, and in another episode he said he was now divorced. This must be around series 29-ish ... I went back and re-watched episodes around that time and I can't find any reference...

    Who is Brian Batty?

    In the December 1982 special “All Mod Conned” in the Café there is a poster for an “Xmas Flower Extravaganza” with the name ‘Brian Batty’. I know this has been mentioned on the forum before, but no one seemed to even query to origin of the name, for example: Was it a real poster from Holmfirth...

    Maurice Chevalier Pub

    In the series 12 episode "The Last Surviving Maurice Chevalier Impression", at about 5 minutes in, Foggy, compo and Clegg are drinking outside a pub. I think it is a real pub, mainly due to there being several "O" rings fixed to the wall, which seems common on old pubs. There is a sign board by...

    Cooper and Walsh let a drunk out of their car, saying he's five miles from his car... They are at what looks like a rural T junction, there is a stone wall and wooden 5-bar gate in the background and a real road name sign for "Holme Royd". Google cannot find this at all. As some parts of the...
