Default Nora Batty R.I.P.

Kathy Staff who played Nora Batty for some 20 years has passed away at the ripe old age of 80...she provided some happy memories.

Shame, was a good actress, but have to say that The Last of the Summer Wine, is / was without doubt the unfunniest "comedy" in the entire history of television....utter garbage !!

Er, no, I take that back.....I forgot all about... Harry Hill !

Last of the Summer Wine was absolutely dreadful. It has always been dreadful. As so many of the 'stars' have now died perhaps someone will finally decide to stop making this unfunniest of series.



Oliver Postgate dying was far more sad.

Canned laughter as well, even as a lad after a bath on a sunday could I not find it funny.

Now if we're talking 'allo 'allo - wahey, now that was good!

Ah, yes, I used to love watching 'Allo, Allo'.......Remember Renee, Evette & Maria in their French maid outfits every week, the egg whisk and celery, Lieutenant Gruber, Sgt "Klomp", numerous references to the fallen Madonna with the big boobies, Grandma's flashing bedknobs, the two toff English Pilots, the French resistance "listen very carefully I zhall say zis only once" Herr Flick of the Gestapo, and his sexy secretary.....and the English Policeman who tried to speak French.....hilarious

Have the box sets of the tv series....may dig them out !

Ah yes.............. 'allo, 'allo.............

Gorden Kaye (Rene) was injured in a car crash in about 1991 and was off work for several months. I went to the live stage show on his first appearance after he recovered - the opening scene featured him simply walking on to the stage.............

The place erupted, and he was given a standing ovation that must have lasted TEN minutes.

Remember - this was at the start of the show............

Tremendously popular guy.
