Quotes

[first lines]
Compo: It's no good. I've not got the knack. Why's thine a better colour than mine?
Mrs. Batty: I'm not talking to you about washing.
Neighbour: Well, he only asked, Mrs Batty.
Mrs. Batty: Yes, and he only does it so he can talk about me knickers. He's got no shame. I'd dry 'em inside, but you never know when that insurance man's going to come.

Compo's Suit
1 December 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Compo is spring cleaning his house. That is certainly not like him. He even changes his clothes and gets spruced up with his winnings from the bookies. The reason? He is waiting to meet a woman on a bus from Bradford and he wants to impress her.

Blamire and Clegg are a little bit bemused. Blamire has a landlady who meets his catering needs.

The lady turns out to be Liz Smith, the veteran character and comedy actress. She has seen off three husbands who have always left something behind for her. She has little luck with Compo, he has no life insurance, his idea of a slap up dinner is mushy peas in Sid's cafe and she insists on a good night out.

A wryly amusing episode, I think Compo had a narrow escape. I think that tartan hat did not suit him.
