A great comedian. I loved his Ch4 show. Sadly missed.

Terrible about Sean Hughes, he was a major hit in our house back in the early 90s, and a nice guy by all accounts. Ridiculously young.

Also sorry to see Roy Dotrice's passing, his unique ASoIaF readings have given me countless hours of pleasure over the years.

Loved Sean's Show (and is it possible to read or write those two words without the tune Seanie's Show entering the head?) and saddened that the coverage didn't mention it more, as it's what he would have have liked his legacy to be, rather than 'team captain, nmtb'.  Sobering that he'd have been in a hospital I passed on my way home from work (and that I've also spent a few weeks in).

Shame about Sean. Loved Sean's Show - obviously influenced by Garry Shandling's Show... another we lost too early.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Shame about Carluccio. I enjoyed some his antics with Gennaro Contaldo. RIP.

Manson - good riddance.  Glad to see the back of him

Rodney Bewes.

Loved him as Bob Ferris in Likely Lads  :( :(
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

That's sad, they were just getting ready to celebrate his 80th birthday on BBC Radio 4 Extra.
