Last of the Summer Wine : Finally appreciating The Truly Era

Finally appreciating The Truly Era

Having got up to Series 24 for the first time I can really say I thoroughly enjoy Frank Thornton's portrayal as Truly of the Yard.

I had always been a Foggy man, thinking he was the best third man and nothing could change that. But Thornton is such a good actor, if you really watch him bounce off Cleggy, when Cleggy says something Truly really laughs, it's not a stage laugh. He is much better than I thought he was.

It's funny how the appraisal changes when you binge watch series rather than dropping in on episodes and missing a few here and there when they are broadcast.

It'll be interesting to see the progression to the end of the run, but so far I am loving Truly....

Frank Thornton was a brilliant comedy actor and a great addition to Summer Wine.

I believe I like him better than Foggy.
