As many fans will know, Tim Healy took ill last month whilst filming on location in Benidorm, Spain and was recently flown back to the UK to rest. Since news broke, we’ve been overwhelmed with get well wishes from fans across social media.

Whilst Tim is recovering, the team at the Auf Wiedersehen, Pet Fansite would like to take this opportunity to join fans in wishing ‘our gaffer’ a speedy recovery back to good health! 

Here are just a few of the messages we’ve received:

Sunday For Sammy 2016 DVD Preview...

Sunday the 12th June saw the official Sunday for Sammy 2016 DVD Preview launched at a private viewing where cast came together to watch a truly wonderful performance recorded back in February at Newcastle’s City Hall.

Two sell out performances featured Northern comedy in abundance and an array of fine live music plus a two-part special Auf Wiedersehen, Pet sketch entitled ‘Helen and the Geordies’ – a hilarious comedy take on ‘Helen of Troy’ - penned by the shows original writers Ian Le Frenais and Dick Clement.

This two-hour entertainment extravaganza not only remembers Sammy Johnson (AKA Martin Cooper, Series 2) but the late Brendan Healy (AKA Andy, Series 1) in a truly fitting tribute to two Geordie legends.

For a full review and photos of this year’s performance check out our March newsletter here.

D-HB…. That’s the district of Dusseldorf isn’t it?

The car wasn’t for sale… but the number plate certainly was in a recent on-line auction held last month!

Fans will remember Wayne’s cherished red BMW was a little present to himself after working 6 months in the ‘Arctic Circle’ in Series 2, Episode 7. Having ‘inadvertently overlooked’ import duty, his pride and joy was seized by Customs and Excise – thanks to Arthur ‘Tiger’ Pringle – resulting in Oz enjoying an afternoon of passion in a beautifully ironic twist of fate! (Ed. we knew there was a reason Stan Hey joined the writing team!!)

Whilst Wayne’s BMW is believed to have long since gone, the front number plate was retained by its owner as a souvenir.

Following last month’s auction, the anonymous winning bidder – and Auf Pet Super Fan - contacted us to share their news and photographs of this cherished piece of Series 2 memorabilia. It truly is one of a kind!

We’d like to thank the current owner for bringing this incredible collector’s item to our attention and for taking several snaps to share – more of which will appear on the Official Auf Wiedersehen, Pet Fansite very soon.

 

Do you have any memorabilia from Auf Wiedersehen, Pet? Want to share it with us? We’d love to hear from you. Simply drop us a line via our contacts page here.

Yours ’til the next point of interest,

Lee, Tim & Andy
