DIY Steptoe

Postby Dirty Old Yank » Tue May 03, 2011 3:53 pm

Have you ever imagined your own Steptoe scenario?
If you had the chance, what would you have Albert & Harold doing these days?
Thanks to Ray and Alan they're archetypes, thanks to Harry and Wilfrid they're icons...though we couldn't possibly compete with their talents, nearly anything works.
A random example:
Harold brings back a pair of leather trousers from his round and the episode virtually writes itself!
Does Albert vote Labour? Does Harold get a hairpiece?
Do they win the lotto and move to Hampstead? don't be shy.

They get a dog - not like the greyhound, but Albert takes ina stray, and calls it "Harold". But of course doggie Harold gets far more attention than human Harold. And when Doggie Harold is making those rather awful doggie smells, it is human Harold getting the blame...

A balding Harold buys a toupee and is chastised endlessly by Albert. That evening they go to the cinema. To see Alien. Later Albert mistakes it for a creature from outer space, grabs a spade and slices it in half. The next day Harold cobbles the remaining bits together, puts it on, is mistaken for Professor Wallofski and is awarded tenure at the university of your choice.

There was a rather big debate on here, and still on youtube (blah) as to whether Harry himself wore a toupee. What actors don't in most roles? It's impossible to grow you hair the way every role wants it if you're constantly working...

But your idea sounds great!!

(Cheers Phil, true or not I'll wager it's only a debate until they start losing their own hair!)
They find themselves at an amusement park like Blackpool Pleasure Beach. A fearless Harold is determined to goad Albert onto one of the major rides and finally does, but in spite of his warnings his pater eats huge quantities of sweets first. But Harold is the one that becomes ill and ends up on the roundabout while Albert enjoys some outrageous roller coaster again and again.
