They did that some years before with Rene and Edith sitting outside the cafe' long after the war, reminiscing (ie a clip show with the best moments). It confused me because Rene had run off with Evette in the final episode, but now he was back with Edith.
Personally, I'd have run off with Maria a long tme before the end of the war.

Richard Marner cropped up in a number of programmes and films, often playing Germans and Russians (he was Russian himself). Often in other shows he played quite eveil, scary characters, a total conrast to Colonel Von Strom.
I love Allo'Allo. I thought some of the word play was marvellous, including the candle with the handle and the small 'orse with the small 'earse. Not forgetting Crabtree with his mangled Franglais. The cast was top notch as well. My favourite character was Kenneth Connor as Monsiuer Alphonse, the sight of Madame Edith making his dicky ticker go on ther blink!
I loved it as well, a bit like a Carry On - I did read that David Croft wanted to call it Carry On Resisting but Peter Rogers owned the copyright Carry On prefix, I did think it went a a couple of series too long maybe it should have stopped when David stopped writing it or when Richard Gibson left.
Hi crabtree, I think that's part of what's so funny about it - it is completely illogical and ludicrous. It doesn't make sense - a definite suspension of disbelief (or belief? Never sure which is correct) required for Allo Allo I think

Allo Allo is a spoof of Secret Army, and I think the accents done in Allo Allo were better than Secret Army (which I have been watching lately on DVD - a FANTASTIC series!!). The Belgians all have British accents, whereas the Germans have German accents. The British pilots all have British Accents too. Some of the Brits can't communciate with the Belgians as they don't speak French or Flemish, the Germans talk with the Belgians with no problem but their accents don't change compared with when they talk with each other.... It's just one of those things you have to overlook and forget to enjoy the show.
Another BBC series I remember was Van Der Valk about a Dutch cop living and working in Amsterdam. it was filmed there on location and was totally Dutch, except everyone in it spoke with British accents. ;D
