LOTSW finally axed by the BBC

  TopCat® 18:05 02 Jun 2010

A few new episodes will be shown later this summer. click here

All good things come to an end as they say and, after 37 years, I for one will certainly miss their antics and that glorious Yorkshire scenery on the small screen. TC.

There have been a lot of changes in the cast over the years but it has still remained a fairly lovable series.

Although some of the others have been there a long time, I think Peter Sallis is the only original left.

I think I've told the story before about being out of sight round a corner in a bar I used to frequent with a couple of mates.

When a couple of visitors went to sit at the table we often used the barman said, "I wouldn't sit there, that's "Last of the Summer Wine" country!

I took it as a compliment and still do!

They should repeat it, from the first programme. I used to quite like it, but latterly they brought in too many weak characters imo.

There's a couple of episodes on UKGOLD most days.

You could never replace Compo or Foggy. I could not get on with Seymour but I think Truly was/is a fitting follow up for Foggy with a similar character.

Recent episodes have only had Clegg and Truly in cameo appearences, probably finding it difficult now due to their advancing years.

I think Blamire, the original, was my favourite "third character".

I though Russ Abbott was dire.

I thought it was past it's sell by date when Blamire was in it, and he was only in 2 series!

But hey ho, some people enjoy watching paint dry...

Why on earth it took the BBC 37 years to axe this programme is a mystery to me.

36 years 364 days too late IMO.

  Quickbeam 14:08 03 Jun 2010

After 37 years they might as well have gone for a grand 40th anniversary finale series...
