I would really like it if Foggy went into the shop and talked about all the prices of things LOL
Yes it was odd that Goodnight was acceptable and worth another series,yet they did not, yet the remake of Porridge was terrible and they made a series out of it, I have given up trying to understand the BBC these daysSorry if its been discussed before, but I caught the 'modern' 1 episode of Goodnight Sweetheart recently...
I thought it was fairly good! and was worth at least a season to see what happens, but much reading on the webs said no go - anybody know why it didnt get a green light?
As for Still open all hours, there isnt much they can really do different in the shop is there?
I've watched one or 5 episodes on Youtube and DailyM, i thought it was good, but I'll laugh at most British comedies, they are easily the best.
I agree with most remakes being hideous desperate efforts to cash in. I haven't seen the new Porridge and reading this I dont think I'll go looking for it either! - Sometimes its nice to have memories of how things were. Why do they have to go and ruin it!Of all the offerings from the remakes I thought Hancock and Till Death do us Part were well made as was Steptoe and Son but they were presented as stage plays and I think that added to shows. However , I could not see them becoming series nor would I want them to be because the originals were iconic and deserve to remain untouched . As Terry says Porridge was just awful and did not deserve a series in any shape or form . I did not see Goodnight and cannot really comment
I think it was a normal house when they filmed the episode.I went to Scarborough 3 years ago because of the LOTSW 1976 two-parter. It was really good! I went on the Funicular railway and went for a paddle in the sea. I also saw the boarding house where Foggy, Compo and Clegg stayed. Unfortunately, it's just a normal house now.
I can't remember which episode it was but there was one scene where she was talking about a guy 'Who was so tight with money. I thought we might make a go of it'. He bought her an engagement ring which she was annoyed about because she could have got the same ring for 20% off. Maybe she was talking about Arkwright?.It never happened but imagine the duel of wits between Arkwright and Auntie Wainwright!
That episode is "The Mischievous Tinkle in Howard's Eyes."I can't remember which episode it was but there was one scene where she was talking about a guy 'Who was so tight with money.

Linda Baron appeared in both shows. Maybe she was the go between?.Well the two shops are only about 42 miles apart [ Marsden and Doncaster for Aunties and Arkwrights respectively] so its hardly long distance Courting however Nurse Gladys might have something to say about it.
