I was wondering whether any of the characters from Last of the Summer Wine ever died, at least died from age related conditions, the three main characters anyway; not the actors, the characters. From what I remember, whenever a character was replaced, it was because his predecessor had moved away. That surprised me because they seemed to be having such a great time. I was looking it up on Wikipedia and the queen told Thora Hird it was her favourite programme. This made me wonder what sort of telly has the queen got.
