So sad that in real life Terry did the dirty on Bob.

"Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads" is still the yardstick by which all others should be judged.

Report alun2005 January 3, 2019 2:12 PM GMT
The episode "The Old Magic" sees Terry inform Bob that the latter is suffering from "Hutchinson's Disease", a euphemism for someone wanting to have sex with every available female.

The reason why 'WHTTLL' is so revered is that the excellence of the product is due to script, plot, dialogue, characterisation and performance. 

The writers didn't feel obliged to parachute in any Left-Wing, Trans, Multicultural and/or Gay characters to get the project green-lighted. As we know all too well, this latter strategy is absolutely compulsory today, however ridiculous the result.

I CAN WELL IMAGINE , that some of dirty little hutch's tips may well have had names like , Fill your boots , Get stuck in , Backdoor alley and his fave one , Dirty little fella . All those tips he gave would run at Newcastle , and if they run again , i advice you not to back them .I have a tip to give you , back a horse called , FLOWER GIRL .I'm not sure when it's running next but i'm gunna put my shirt on that pretty filly .

Did Terry ever find the source of the Tweed?

A measure of the show's quality is how many all-time-great sequences are stuffed into just one individual episode.

We all love the 'No Hiding Place' episode ("People don't go around saying nil-two, do they?"), but that's also the show which features Terry's epic takedown of every foreigner on the planet:

There's nothing bigoted about it. Everyone is treated equally. As Terry concludes: "Come to think of it, I don't even like the people next door." And besides, his are the views of a man who's travelled the world, and even married a German woman. As he says of the breakdown of that marriage, "There's them and us. People should take heed of the failure of my entry into Europe."

A brilliant summary of Teryy's take on foreigners,cockneys,jocks and yorkshiremen screaming, still smiling when I think about that scene ! The BBC management team would have to be given counselling just watching that episode today !
