Barry from Eastenders is a great object of ridicule and entertaining and why he shouldn't be Sid James.

Btw - before I get angry about a Carry On rehash did you make this up Scott or is it an official rumour?

Me too! Why can't we just celebrate the originals? They were masters of their art. A very talented comical crew.

Loking thru' that list, there are quite a few of them who just could not fill the originals' shoes: Sorry to be a stick in the mud, 'n all that. :chin:

I agree. Like Fawlty Towers the Carry On brand was a classic and should be left alone.


Although there's no reason why there couldn't be a modern comedy team making a series of films as long is it didn't try and copy the carry on format

No, no, no, no..........the success of the original Carry on's was due entirely to those particular actors and actresses doing what it was that they did well, they brought their own unique style to the franchise, to recast today's comedians and have them impersonate the original line up is wrong,wrong, wrong and should not be attempted.

If the Carry on franchise was to be brought back to life then who ever they cast should bring their own talents to the project, i.e Martin Clunes should do Martin Clunes not Sid James or Charles Hawtrey or Kenneth Williams.

Carry On Columbus had Rik Mayall attempting to be Kenneth Williams, it just did not work, Julian Clary was Julian Clary and that did work.

Scott darling, your a great guy but next time your bored gimme your msn and we can do cyber together, just don't go making suggestions like this that you'll regret in the morning :D :squeeze: :d
