Shoot the piano player
31 May 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The second series meant that Blake Butler was replaced in the library. No more of his lustful Cumbrian tones although he would return for a couple of episodes a few years later.

As the boys mess around in the library, two new librarians are hot on keeping morality. Making sure any saucy books are kept out of bounds.

The main part of the episode is the boys transporting a piano and writer Roy Clarke seems to have missed a trick as I expected the piano to roll down a hill.

What we get instead is Blamire playing the piano badly but it does give Compo an opportunity to dance with Nora Batty.

There is a nice turn by the lollipop man who cannot stand kids.
