BritCom Q&A

MULBERRY

What years was this program filmed? When was the last episode filmed? Thank you!

We don't have the exact dates, but two series of MULBERRY were made -- one in 1992 and the other in 1993.

LAST OF THE SUMMER WINE

What happened to Compo? On the show they suddenly had a funeral episode. Did the actor playing the part die?

Bill Owen (Compo) died of cancer three years ago at age 85 . He had been with the series for over 25 years from the beginning. The character Compo was written out of the series, and the writers devoted three episodes to his death and funeral. Bill Owen's son Tom then joined the series as Compo's long-lost son. At his request, Bill Owen was buried in the Yorkshire village where the series is filmed.

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.
