Having difficulty in choosing a favourite episode?

Postby stephen68 » Thu Apr 19, 2012 4:46 pm

Why not try to pick your favourite episode from each of the eight series and the xmas specials.
These are my choices
Series 1 = The Offer
Series 2 = The Stepmother
Series 3 = The Wooden Overcoats
Series 4 = Those Magnificent Men And Their Heating Machines
Series 5 = Any Old Iron?
Series 6 = The Three Feathers
Series 7 = Live Now P A Y E Later
Series 8 = The Seven Steptorai

Xmas Special = A Perfect Christmas

I don't see how anyone could possibly choose a favorite episode from season 7, they're all so good. That had to be the finest season of the entire production run.
I thought we'd nick a wreath off one of the graves as we went in.

yes i agree Robert (assuming you are THE Ivor!). i find it hard to vote on a particular episode too.

although i think stephen's suggestion of "Live now, P.A.Y.E later" is perhaps a particularly good candidate - since it features the hilariously unforgettable sight - by any yardstick - of Albert in drag and spreadeagled!

My favourites change on a regular basis but there are some that stand miles apart for me, "Robbery with Violence" is always a favourite and the heartbreaking ending to "Steptoe and son - And Son" will most likely always be my top two. The rest would be pointless for me to vote on as it would change immediately!
