Another sad loss, Stephen “Blakey” Lewis

14th August 2015

Star of the “Buses” TV shows and films, and later as the help in Auntie’s shop in Last of the Summer Wine. He could be referred to as the Whine as he was gormless, clueless and invariable miserable.
In real life he appears to have been a cheerful chap. He wrote the screenplay for “Sparrows Can’t Sing” in which he appeared as another grumpy old man, with Barbara Windsor and James Booth in the lead roles, ably supported by Roy Kinnear.
Stephen will be remembered for his catch phrase “I’ll get yer Butler” and lived a full eighty-eight years.
