    This is sad news. We're losing this cast at a tremendous rate.

    Thankfully, we'll have this show around forever, since it never gets tired.

    Rest in peace, Mr Bannister.

    I think Frank Thornton (Captain Peacock) is the only original member still alive, and he is 90! Mike Berry, who came in around 1981, is still alive (Mr. Spooner.) I just watched AYBS tonight, actually. I didn't know Mr. Bannister was also in The Last Of The Summer Wine. If I had, I'd have watched it more often. You could just tell how much talent the man had, a tremendous comedy actor.

    Nicholas Smith is still alive.

    I am just hearing about this... RIP Mr. Lucas!

    Frank Thornton (Mr. Peacock) was still kicking it as an actor in Last of the Summer Wine, right up to its cancellation last summer.

    I didnt know this! I can't believe Trevor was 76. I used to watch him in the seventies and that program was so big back then!



    My sister used to live in Holmfirth where Last of the Summer Wine was filmed. A beautiful place.
