The Last of the Summer Wine

The final curtain has fallen on the world’s longest running sitcom The Last of the Summer Wine after 37 years, 31 series and 295 episodes.

Peter Sallis, who was in the very first episode, was also in the last, his character Norman Clegg delivering the final line of the show,  which was, ‘Did I lock the door?’.

In its heyday, the show attracted as many as 18 million viewers each episode.
