Editorial Reviews

The world’s longest-running sitcom is back with more adventures from everyone’s favorite geriatrics! Soon after Foggy leaves for Bridleton to inherit his uncle’s business, Seymour Utterthwaite (Michael Aldridge) arrives on the scene in the wake of a self-propelled wheelbarrow, the first of many wacky inventions to leap from the mind of this retired headmaster. Clegg takes Compo and Seymour on a sentimental journey to re-create the times when his old school chums would walk gates and climb trees together. Also, Compo willingly agrees to ‘”road-test” Seymour's new concept of a gentleman's purse (especially as there will be real money provided in it), and Edie's days of carrying a heavy dustbin are numbered when Seymour decides to install a new waste disposal unit for her.

This one comes as hot-on-the-heels of the "Vintage 1985" series set as Warners has done so far with "only" a 4 month gap!

Here's the Press Release info on this one:

"The world's longest-running sitcom is back with more adventures from everyone's favorite geriatrics! Soon after Foggy leaves for Bridleton to inherit his uncle's business, Seymour Utterthwaite (Michael Aldridge) arrives on the scene in the wake of a self-propelled wheelbarrow, the first of many wacky inventions to leap from the mind of this retired headmaster. Clegg takes Compo and Seymour on a sentimental journey to re-create the times when his old school chums would walk gates and climb trees together. Also, Compo willingly agrees to "road-test" Seymour's new concept of a gentleman's purse (especially as there will be real money provided in it), and Edie's days of carrying a heavy dustbin are numbered when Seymour decides to install a new waste disposal unit for her."

This is reported to be a 3-disc set and will include the 1986 New Year's Special "Uncle of the Bride". It is said to run approx. 299 minutes for 12 episodes. But this brings up a bit of conflict. More on that below.

So, "Vintage 1987" you ask? Seems odd as the *only* episode of LOTSW to air in 1987 is "Big Day at Dream Acres" which is the Christmas Special from that year! Considering the inclusion of "Uncle of the Bride" which is considered episode 0 of Series 9, I'm assuming this will actually be Series 9 from 1986 and have the following episodes:

Series 9, Episode 0 - Uncle of the Bride
Original Air Date - 1 January 1986

Series 9, Episode 1 - Why Does Norman Clegg Buy Ladies' Elastic Stockings?

Just got my copy of Last of the Summer Wine - Vintage 1987. As stated by other reviewers, this is an aquired taste that's worth aquiring. I stumbled onto the series a few years ago and have eagerly waited for each DVD release. They just get better as the series progresses, but you don't have to have the whole back story to enjoy the off beat humor or the antics of the aging men that are the staples of the series. As for me, I'm going to grab a cup of tea curl into my easy chair and enjoy a pleasent evening with my "old friends".

There was some question as to the number of discs and the actual episodes included with vintage 1987, so here's the list with episode numbers and original air dates. :-)

DISC 1
62 - Jan 01, 1986 - New Years Special - Uncle of the Bride
64 - Dec 28, 1986 - Why Does Norman Clegg Buy Ladies Elastic Stockings?
65 - Jan 11, 1987 - The Heavily Reinforced Bottom.
66 - Jan 18, 1987 - Dried Dates and Codfanglers

DISC 2
67 - Jan 25, 1987 - The Really Masculine Purse
68 - Feb 01, 1987 - Who's Feeling Ejected Then?
69 - Feb 08, 1987 - The Ice-Cream Man Cometh
70 - Feb 15, 1987 - Set the People Free
71 - Feb 22, 1987 - Go with the Flow

DISC 3
72 - Mar 01, 1987 - Jaws
73 - Mar 08, 1987 - Edie and the Automobile
74 - Mar 15, 1987 - Wind Power
75 - Mar 22, 1987 - When You Take a Good Bite, Yorkshire Tastes Terrible

Like Howie I am glad to see a quicker release schedule and hope it continues.

According to information at the BBC America Shop, this is only a 2-disc set (the Amazon description claims 3) and includes the twelve Season 9 episodes listed in Howie's review, plus the 1986 New Year's special "Uncle of the Bride" as a "special feature."

The 1986 Christmas special "Merry Christmas Father Christmas" and the 1987 Christmas special "Big Day at Dream Acres" are evidently NOT included.

Perhaps they intend to release another separate Christmas specials DVD as they did with the 1978-1982 specials.

I also agree with Howie that Last of the Summer Wine is an acquired taste but worth the effort. I caught brief snippets of the series on my local PBS station for a couple years before becoming hooked. The series contains a lot of subtle but delightful nuances, note how composer Ronnie Hazlehurst often sychronizes musical instruments used in the background score to specific movements by the characters.

Episodes tend to build gradually before reaching a sudden unexpected and hilarious finish. There are also excellent examples of slapstick physical comedy. The senior citizens of Holmfirth appear to be made of very sturdy stock, they can fall from 2nd story windows, rooftops and trees and only require a little brushing off.

I gave this release 4 stars. It deserves 5 stars in my opinion but fans of Brian Wilde's character Foggy may require a little time to warm to (temporary) replacement Michael Aldridge's character Seymour.

Just finished watching all three discs in this series of Summer Wine, and I found it to be one of the funniest (I own all of the sets released so far). The movie "Uncle of the Bride" introduces us to the Seymour character, and as another reviewer stated he takes a little getting used to. I found him somewhat annoying and over the top in the movie, however, as the series progresses the writer apparently decided to soften the harsher edges and Seymour definitely grows on you, and I actually now prefer him to the Foggy character.

Quite a few of the wonderful supporting characters play a larger role in this series, and it's wonderful to watch these so very talented actors. Of course, Nora Batty is one of my favorites, as is Ivy. Just priceless. The Edie character displays many of the same traits (though not quite as objectionable) as Hyacinth Bucket of Keeping Up Appearances, also written by Roy Clarke, and it's hilarious to watch and mentally compare them. And of course the beautiful Yorkshire countryside makes me to want to go and visit there! I laughed so hard while watching these discs that my stomach muscles hurt.

Now if only the powers that be got off the dime and started releasing these wonderful sets faster and more frequently! The final show aired in August 2010, which means there are 23 more seasons of Summer Wine to be released. Hurry it up already!
