Hello from the frozen north

Post by Kenny Fraser » Fri Nov 24, 2017 12:53 pm

Aye, Glasgow is cold today, just for a change. Been a fan of AWP since its original broadcast in '83 when I was a teenager.

I taped it at the time and was known to quote from the show's endless witty lines, although the least said the better about my attempt at Barry's accent when recalling his table tennis triumphs. Don't think Oz was too impressed by this display of athleticism and sporting excellence. Or by the signed photograph of Lena Zavaroni. :lol:

As Timothy Spall said to Mark Lawson in a BBC4 interview, TV doesn't get any better than this series. Superb writing from master craftsmen Clement and La Frenais and a unique blend of actors combined to produce a glittering chunk of television gold.

Cheers, but I'm slightly worried as it took me a few seconds to think of where the quote came from...Ally in Spain? James Booth looked younger in AWP than he did in The Sweeney a decade earlier!
