There was only ever once choice for scene of the week and we’re sure you’ll all agree – it was the festival crash. As everyone took to the stage did the celebrations, Harold lost concentration in his campervan and calamity ensued. What was great about this scene was the fact it was played for laughs and not cheap drama. We knew no one would die – the show would never make Harold responsible for someone’s death – so instead of having a fake out, the show ran with its comic instinct. Everything about the scene worked, right down to the classical Grieg score, the slow mo dive, the eruption of water and of course, those final few moments as dazed Harold opened his eyes to find his late wife beside him. “Oh Harold, what have you done?” Iconic.
