The following is a list of characters in the BBC sitcom Last of the Summer Wine. The series focuses primarily on a trio of old men and their interaction with other characters in town. Due to the longevity of the series it has often been necessary to replace key characters due to an actor's death, illness, or unavailability for other reasons. Many characters were first seen in "one-off" appearances and were popular enough or felt to have enough potential for them to be brought back as regulars, in some instances replacing previous members of the cast.
