It certainly was not 10 years
29 June 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

A strange episode of Last of the Summer Wine. It features archive clips of Compo.

Clegg realises that it has been 10 years since Compo died. He and Truly recount some tales to Alvin about the misadventures of Compo.

This leads to flashbacks of Compo, getting water thrown at him by Nora Batty. Escapades in motorised vehicles or in boats.

There ar3 lengthy clips from one of his last episodes, Last Post and Pigeon.

The trouble is this episode was broadcast in 2008. Bill Owen died in 1999 and his final epsidoes were shown in 2000.

So it was not 10 years in any way or form. I do wonder if there were some other reasons for the clips show. I can only think the death of Kathy Staff might have lead to the episode being drastically rewritten.
