When the trio are knocked into the stream, we see them going over the wall at all angles. Yet, when we see then from Nora's perspective, they are all standing up, and wet only about half way to their knees. See more »

Quotes

Clegg: Maybe Hitler hand his shirt hanging out. I mean, the Nazi salute was a natural for pulling your shirt out, eh? All those big rallies. Everyone in the front chanting "Sieg heil, sieg heil!" and the people at the back thinking, "My God, he;s got his shirt hanging out."

The size of it
7 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

The start of series 8 and we have reached 1985.This is going to be Foggy's final series as actor Brian Wilde announced he was to leave. If you look at the pub scenes you can tell from the way the customers were dressed that we are really at this 1980s look. Forget the New Romantic fashion of the early 1980s, here we just had people looking a little smarter, a bit more better groomed and this is in a pub in Yorkshire. I'll ignore Compo in all this.

This is an episode of two halves here. It starts Clegg being whimsical again about Hitler as they walk across the moors before the subject turns to the size of Nora Batty's feet. Of course they need an expert and it turns out to be Wally and it is a virtuoso performance from actor Joe Gladwin as he is dragged into the pub. As the years went on, his part increased and he made the most of it.

There is that great line he comes out with, given the small stature of his size what would happen if Nora was attacked.

'i'd have to stand there helpless. Helpless! She could have the bloke mauled to death before I could pull her off.'

The second part loses a little impetus when the attention turns to Nora herself until the ending as the trio try to measure her feet while she has climbed a ladder.

However I did wince when the trio themselves fall off the ladder in to the shallow stream below. That was a steep fall.
