BritCom Q&A

AS TIME GOES BY

Really enjoyed the new (4) episodes. Was this the last they will do or will there be future new episodes? It seemed the story line was left open for future ones. (Grandchildren, etc.)

The latest news we have heard is this is the last we will be receiving. But, we have to leave the door open just in case they decide to make more and if budgets permit, we'll have them on the air.

LAST OF THE SUMMER WINE

What happened to Brian Wilde who played Foggy?

In 1997, just prior to filming new episodes, he was taken ill and could not continue, so Frank Thornton (Truly) was brought into the series on very short notice--and has stayed. Mr. Wilde has since recovered.

KEEPING UP APPEARANCES

What do the letters "FH" stand for on Onslow's cap?

According to sources, "FH" stands for Fulton Hogan, a New Zealand airport development, management, and technology company. The hat was given to Geoffrey Hughes (Onslow) by an employee of the company while he was visiting that country.
