Last of Nora Batty...

Having only just recently commented on losing Oliver Postgate (see previous blog post), it is with heavy heart that I post news of yet another lost legend in Kathy Staff, better known as Last Of The Summer Wine's Nora batty. Everyone's favourite broom-wielding, saggy-stockinged battleaxe passed away at the weekend after being ill for some time.

The 80-year-old, who had appeared in the hit sitcom for 243 episodes from 1973 until August this year, will be remembered for her hair net, her gossip-mongering and for being the object of desire for loveable rogue Compo (played by the late Bill Owen, pictured abover). But let's not forget that she also appeared in Crossroads, Emmerdale Farm, Coronation Street and Open All Hours, too.
