Character Titles


Dedicated Member
After doing a long trawl I came up with the following as a list of definite titles that have main characters names in. Some that were excluded include the likes of The Man from Oswestry, That Certain Smile or even Enter the Hawk where the character is alluded to but not named.

"Who's That Dancing With Nora Batty Then?"
"The Mysterious Feet of Nora Batty"
"Who's That Bloke With Nora Batty Then?"

"How Errol Flynn Discovered the Scar of Nora Batty"
"Beware of Laughing at Nora's Hats"

"The Changing Face of Rural Blamire"

"Cheering Up Gordon"
Going to Gordon's Wedding"

"The Kink in Foggy's Niblick"
"The Empire That Foggy Nearly Built"
"The Dewhursts of Ogleby Hall"

"Getting on Sidney's Wire"

"Edie and the Automobile"

"A Landlady for Smiler"
"Springing Smiler"

"Getting Barry Higher in the World"
"Barry's Christmas"
"What's Happened to Barry's Nose?"
"Will Barry go Septic Listening to Classical Music?"
"I Didn't Know Barry Could Play"
"Getting Barry's Goat"
"Why is Barry at an Angle?"
"Who's That With Barry and Glenda?"
"Has Anyone Seen Barry's Midlife Crisis?"

"Happy Birthday, Howard"
"A Double For Howard"
"Oh Howard, We Should Get One of Those"
"Howard Throws a Wobbler"
"The Mystical Squeak of Howard's Bicycle"
"Little Orphan Howard"
"In Which Howard Gets Double Booked"
In Which Howard Remembers Where He Left..."
"The Mischievous Tinkle in Howard's Eyes"
"Will Howard Cross the Atlantic Single Handed?"
"Behind Every Bush There is Not Necessarily a Howard"
"The Rights of Man (Except for Howard)"
"Howard and the Great Outdoors"

"The Thing in Wesley's Shed"

"Truly and the Hole Truth"

"The Missing Bus of Mrs. Avery"

"Why Does Norman Clegg buy Ladies' Stockings"
"The Incredible Ordeal of Norman Clegg"
"Yours Truly - If You're Not Careful"

"Merry Entwistle and Jackson Day"

"Who's That Merry Man with Billy, Then?"

"Who's That Talking To Lenny?"

"A Short Introduction to Cooper's Rules"

"Who's That Looking Sideways At Nelly?"

"Will Stella Find True Love with Norris Fairburn?"

Initial thoughts are that Nora, Howard and Barry dominate the list, it's remarkable Compo was never name checked at all title wise and quite a few get only the one with the likes of Ivy, Aunty Wainwright, Pearl all getting none as well.
