panik: (Withnail - not London)

Don't worry, the sound is down, I am in no danger.

I was musing on the fact that hardly any of the original cast are still extant. I think Roy Clarke is still writing it but he's 79 now and it suddenly occurred to me that, the whole show has become PG Wodehouse's typewriter!

PGW owned the same typewriter from 1912 until his death in 1975 but by that time, every single part of it had been, at some time replaced, leading to the deep and philosophical conundrum; was it still, in actual fact, the same typewriter? ::cue spooky music::

Will Last of the Summer Wine, like Pelham Grenville's beloved Royal, go on and on and on until every actor in the English-speaking world has died? It's a frightening thought.
