I'd like to live just long enough to be there when they cut off your head and stick it on a pike as a warning to the next ten generations that some favors come with too high a price. I would look up into your lifeless eyes and wave, like this.

Never a truer word spoken.  As good as the writing was on B5, the acting quality brought it out.  Furst was no exception.  Too many now beyond the rim.

Brian Cant from Parkinson's at age 83

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!

Brian Cant from Parkinson's at age 83

My very first TV hero, and punchline of my very first joke.  I was a big fan of Play School, and I was entranced to find Brian had 'graduated' with me to the far more grown-up Playaway. And how I lived through long hours of the test-card to be rewarded by his voice on Camberwick Green. He hove back into my awareness with the unmissable Great Egg Race, and finally (for me) working with Lee and Herring. Just a huge part of my personal cultural landscape. RIP.

Yup. Cant. Paul Danquah. Wally Whyton. Johnny Silvo. Sarah Long. Not to mention Buffy, Mopsy, Peter, Benjamin, and Becky. All gone.
Not sure if pervert or cheesecake expert.

Utterly devastating, some of the most gentke, charming, engrossing and just plain wholesome childrens books ever written.

He was, by all accounts, as decent and kindly as his most famous creation. The Paddington books were some of the first ones I was able to find for myself and check out of the children's section of our local library. I loved them, and the line drawings by Peggy Fortnum, and the wonderful tv cartoons that followed. When I think of Paddington's voice it is Michael Horden I hear.

Possibly it is reading to much into simple books for children but the themes of evacuees, refugees, acceptance, kindness and decency contained within still speak to me of the country we used to be, and one we can still become.

World book day tweeted Paddington's famous label yesterday: "Please look after this Bear" with the simple comment "We will"

(guiltily) I didn't realise he was still alive.  Glad he got to see his greatest creation get the Hollywood treatment (it's a good film too).

And by Hollywood, I mean Paddington was co-produced by "French company StudioCanal and the British company Heyday Films"

The best Easter egg I ever got was a Paddington one. It had jelly marmalade sandwiches inside.
