Prequel...

Post by RHill » Wed Apr 10, 2013 12:49 am

I wonder if the writers Dick & Ian & Stan have ever considered writing a prequel for AWP? Obviously casting fresh younger actors like John Sullivan did for 'Rock & Chips'. First episode could start by showing a bomb flattening Oz's granny, followed by screen captions that says 'Twenty Years Later'. Starts with a young Oz singing in the bath with a lovely singing voice and you get to see his dad never leaving Tyneside and his mam never drinking for health reasons. (There will be a plot of course in 1960s Gateshead) Then next week, episode two could follow Barry and his playing partner Ferguson being a successful table tennis team in the West Bromwich & District Sunday Methodist League. They lose in the final! Episode three could be about a young Neville going for nature walks and catching butterflies and meets Brenda in the park. They fall in love at first sight. And so on... Does anyone else want to add an episode 4?

(If the writers Dick, Ian & Stan ever stumble-upon this post, can you please consider this? Thanks in advance)

Episode 4, Bomber and Patsy. 1963 Bristol. Bomber, 23 years old has not had time for a serious relationship. He's been on the wrestling circut since he was 18 and has done very well. Touring with the 'circus', he got the name 'Bomber' for his massive body thumping dives on often less well built oponents. But he did learn a trade in school, bricklaying ofcourse. He does have a couple of weaknesses or three; booze, gambling and women. Living this gypsy life has seen him being able to take on all three at once and quicly move on. Despite being so young, he has lived more than most, twice his age. Its a big event in his home town and his family are ringside. But Bomber's attention is fixed on the lass selling ice-creams. She is a tiny wee thing, wearing fishnet stockings, balancing on high-heals, carrying the ice-cream tray and also wearing a pointed little hat. Bomb has seen her through the curtains and is infatuated. When its his turn in the ring, he finds it hard to concentrate. Then it happens. Some loudmouth drunk yells at Bomb, calling him a "fat ginger puff !" Name calling goes with the show but the drunk jumps up and knocks the ice-cream lass for six. Bomber dives through the ropes, knocks the drunk into next week and with beads of sweat dripping of his beard, kneels over the girl as the crowd gather around. "Are you alright my dear ?" he asks. The girl looks into his eyes and seeing stars replies, "Oh yes thank you. My names Patsy, whats yours ?"...

Wayne's episode would have to cover him losing his virginity in the children's ward of Whitechapel hospital

And the ensuing tabloid outrage 30 yr later with the nurse ending up on the sex offenders list.

Re Bomber and Patsy, Bristol 1963; remember the times loike, The Beatles, John Profumo, Stephen Ward, Christine Keeler, Mandy Rice-Davies, James Bond, "Ich bin ein Berliner !", "I have a dream !", Harold Macmillan, JFK blown away... The lass selling ice-creams in fishnet stockings at the 'All Star Wrestling Night of Nights' goes hand in hand with the era. And the young Bomber is captivated. So when she is sprawled out, covered in ice-creams and cigarette ash, people yelling and screaming, fishnet stockings and high-heels, Bomber is away !!!

Love some of these posts! The Bomber story line was brilliant! I can't imagine anybody else playing Bomber, but all this talk helps to keep the spirit alive!
