Questions from Stan Hey, Big Baz, Colin, Barry & Will

Post by Auf Wiedersehen, Pet » Sun Jul 06, 2014 7:18 pm

If you want to know anything about Series 1 or 2, or more appropriately the Derbyshire episodes, then please get your questions in below.

I know you all like to chuck a few quotes in between topics, me included, but for ease of everything can we just have Questions only. The point....the point, is that when we are at the Fan Gathering, I can simple read these questions out from the Forum.

Hi Lee,

I was wondering if Stan Hey or any of the other production staff were spoken to about writing /filming the third series of AWP in the 80's. Or if anything at all was mentioned ?

I was also wondering if Stan could write us a story for the fan fiction page of the site :D

Cheers mate

I would like to know about Series 1, 'When the Boat Goes Out', the hut fire. My question is, what preparations had to be made with the local council, fire brigade, neighbours and actors union ? [Actors what ?!] It would have been a huge operation with obvious dangers. Any bloopers that we doont kna aboot ? How did Stan feel about how it turned oot loike ? [Thats three questions !]

There's always one isn't there that just ignores the rules!

My question for Stan...
What sort of guidelines did Ian and Dick give you to write the episodes or did you have a free rein to do what you wanted?

I would like to ask the crew if they carried out the building work or were Professional builders employed? I.E. The pool, Thornley Manor, Barry's House etc?
Also who put Thornley Manor back to normal after shooting was complete and did the owner Mrs Mathews have a say in the new decoration?

Although I think it was touched upon at the Newcastle event at some point, I'd like to hear Stan's thoughts on Clement and La Frenais talking heads on Drama Connections where they said series one wouldn't have ended up with the hut burning down if they had wrote When the Boat Goes Out.

And how does he feel that the episodes he wrote are commonly regarded as the best in the show's history?

Also, for Big Baz. How does he feel having played one of us Aufaholics best loved characters? Everyone loves Big Baz!

Finally, Colin, Barry and Will. I'm eager to hear any anecdotes/feelings about the filming/cast etc during their time on the show. Especially if anything changed inbetween series 1 and 2, on set.

Not an articulate post, but you get me drift :)

I've got a question, about the questions :?

Is the purpose of this thread mainly for the people who are not attending
the gathering ? I've got a few I wanna ask like, but just wondering if I'll
be able to ask personally on the night, or should they all be directed here,
and will they then just be read out, rather than a Q&A open to the floor
kinda thing ?

That is a good question regarding the questions.

Its kind of both, but if you have some you will have the chance on the night to ask what you want to whoever. You can either share them on here now, or keep them to yourself for the evening. For those unable to attend, such as BA and Tracy and Lou and the rest, I will be reading their questions out on the night and hopefully be able to right down their answer.

I hope this answer to your question, answers your question about the questions.
Anymore questions?
