I'm sure a few others here are old enough to have seen Tommy Cooper go a similar way.

Probably the greatest shame is that Espers always stayed niche.  With Lloyd on art duties it is quite something.  Granted it does fall into a number of standard tropes but then again that may be more because in the intervening thirty odd years we have seen it so many times.  Well worth a read though.

Didn't realise that he did Harsh Realms too though.  Another guilty little pleasure but it is easy to understand why it was so short-lived.

I remember reading the Book of the New Sun as they came out when I was at school at the height of my D&D days, they were hugely influental.

These obituaries always throw up odd facts: "He was instrumental in developing the machine that cooks Pringles crisps"

Damn, this one cut a deep wound. Kelsey uttered a line in that Aardman classic thats since become part of my families popular lexicon.

So sad to hear about Peter. A gloriously warm giant. 43 years on from first his donning the walking carpet, my daughter will wake up this morning beside her cuddly Chewie, under her two Chewie posters and put on her Chewie dressing gown and then i'll have to tell her the news.

The original actors in the Star Wars lexicon are getting to a ripe old age now so not unexpected but equally unfortunate. Chewbacca must be one of the most recognisable characters in Cinema History, and Peter Mayhew made the role more than 'a walking carpet. Very sorry he's gone.

Aw, man, that's heartbreaking. Do you really have to tell her?
