Bomber - 40

I think this is open to lots of discussion!

That's pretty much how I imagined them to be...no big surprises there for me...

Hi all. Just been reading this topic and is something that has fascinated me over the years. I have a day off work, and for my own amusement really, I looked up the actors dates of birth, just to see how that fits in. Just thought I'd share it, so I am using 1983 as a date as that was when the bulk of the first series was filmed, and character names because it is simple. Like me.

Bomber 46
Neville 32
Dennis 31
Wayne 31
Moxey 30
Oz 29
Barry 26

I offer no conclusions only that it tickles me that Nev was actually the oldest of the three geordies, although meant to be ten years younger than Dennis.

When I started watching aufpet at about 16 (I'm 33 now) I obviously thought of the lads as a lot older than me. But now I'm 33, I still imagine them all as older than me even though I'm older than all of them but bomber!

If that makes sense :-)

Apologies if someone else has spotted this (surely someone has).

Series 1 episode 4, Nev gives his date of birth as 23April 1958.

Series 3, episode 1, Oz's picture at his "funeral" states 1958-2001.

Makes Dennis's comment to Oz in series 1 episode 1 a bit incongruous. Right at the beginning when Dennis and Oz are talking at the bar and they mention Nev missing Brenda and Den says "Well they do at that age don't they?". Strange comment to make if Oz and Nev are the same age. Suspect the continuity boys cocked up in series 3.

Yes I think I heard in an interview somewhere that Neville was originally written in as a young lad in the very early drafts - certainly younger than the other 6. Somewhere in the scripts/episodes/series, they show a hint that he's not as young. :)
