Best of Compo
30 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

How can anyone not like a Best of Compo cut and paste episode? If you don't appreciate this episode for what it is, you can not be a true fan of the show.

OK, so it has not been 10 years since Compo died as the title indicates. It's closer to 8 years if we go by transmission dates of the shows or 9 years if we go by when Bill Owen actually died. Either way, this episode was long overdue. This is the first time in 8 years that Compo's image was seen on the screen again and he even gets credited in the opening and closing credits.

The 30 minute episode starts off with Cleggy realizing that today is the ten year anniversary of Compo's death. Nora (off screen) is doing something nasty to Alvin. Alvin visits Cleggy & Truly who go on to describe some of Compo's misadventures that he shared with either Nora, Cleggy or Truly throughout the years. The first half of the show focuses on the relationship between Nora & Compo. The second half of the show focuses on the relationship between the boys & Compo.

Many memorable clips of Compo are included in this special but naturally many, many, many more were not part of this special. However, how is it possible to sum up Compo's 27 or so years on LOTSW in 30 minutes or less? You can't!!! So sit back and enjoy, "The Best of Compo".
