Fantastic comedy; shame the two of them (in the real world) fell out with each other
Perfect in every way?

He has a one face fits all face, covering all emotions
Likely lads great British television,pure nostalgia and a treat to watch
I love the old sitcoms - George & Mildred etc, they capture the era and lifestyle perfectly
Whatever happened to them, aye?

Sad state of affairs to hold a grudge for decades. I was shocked when I heard this in an interview. My mum thought the world of James Bolam but he seems a pretty sad fellow to refuse repeats of the likely lads knowing it was causing financial ruin to his co-star.
We all make mistakes it's the nature 9f being human, it obviously hit Rodney Bewes very hard. Even if he did say something out of turn that's a hell of a grudge to hold for so long.
One of my all time favourites. Basically two different men talking about life. It was set up for them to continue for years with specials and so on. Just a real shame they couldn’t get on in real life and totally opposite in real life.
Just been reading about all that, I had no idea. Really sad. James Bolan, what a nasty piece of work to do that to a fellow human being.
And what became of the people we used to be ?
yeah what a selfish scumbag I will never watch grandpa in my pocket again

it depends on whats rodney bewes had said to james bolam for him not to forgive him,its easy to say not nice when you do not know what was actually said,personally i would give james bolam the benefit of the doubt
no, not ever
there are grudges and eventually people come to terms and make peace
then there's just pure hatred and selfishness which is utterly deplorable

easy to say when what was said was not said to or about you,as we will prob never know what was said best to give the benefit of the doubt,dont forget it hurt james bolam just as much as rodney bewes in the pocket but thats just my view

I read Rodney Bewes revealed in a newspaper interview that Bolam's wife was pregnant. Bolam was notoriously private about his family life, and never forgave Bewes. Strikes me as something you should be big enough to get over.
Classic comedy gold.
