OK pearl first. I have always been a fan. My granddad I suppose got me in to it. He was an Londoner like Bill Owen and used to watch it. When my mum was ill she watched it on gold and got hooked and so I gradually got into it.. Now I watch at least 1 episode a night. its a bit of a tradition now. Start from series one and work through.
Hi Cod. Five Favourite Characters. In no particular order
Compo of course. A classic comedy creation. His don't care about anything way of life.
Clegg. He is the gentle one of the show. He is always quick to shy away from capers. Possibly my favourite of all.
Wally. Poor down trodden wally. His deadpan face. He had a lot to put up with Nora.
Alvin is probably my most favourite of the later trio. He seemed to be a replacement in a way for Compo.
Howard. His antics trying to give pearl the slip always makes me laugh.
Oh Good question. It has to be Wally in The White mans grave. Replying to the trio.
" How are you going to get me back inside. I wish I never escaped" Making it sound like living with Nora is a prison. There are so many lines its hard to pick one.
Ok. Pearl first again. : ). Not a big fan of lot n0 8. With all those coffins. Creepy. Least favourite character. Wasn't any that I didn't really like. Didn't like Hobbo to start with and was just starting to warm to him when they axed the series.
Ok Beth now. : ) If I could talk to Roy. I would ask when he was writing the show was there a favourite actor that he enjoyed writing for the most. It had a steller cast. Also I would ask about his feelings for the bbc after axing the show.
