The wonderful Terry Jones.  :(

An utterly tragic end for a brilliant man. As well as his Python work and films, his medieval history shows were fascinating and hilarious.

We'd known it would be coming for a while, but still a shock when it happens.

Utterly dreadful news.

Heartbreaking.

Poor Terry Jones I'm afraid his dementia became very advanced. A magnificent artistic talent, a great Writer, Comedian and Director. :(

Indisputably one of the greats of modern culture. HIs warm humour was first enthusiastically pressed on me by my Dad, subsequently permeated my whole life, has been successfully passed on to my kids, and I doubt it will stop there. RIP Terry, the world would have been a far duller place without him.

That's how he'd want us to remember him  :D

Aw, man.  Even without Python, his Medieval Lives is one of my favourite books ever; and was the first time I learned that the medieval flat-earth theory is a modern myth.  I also learned that a priest very nearly invented a glider plane in the Middle Ages before the local bishop put a stop to it.

Really sad to hear that Terry Jones has passed on. Really one of the greats of British comedy.

Bah. A majority of extant Pythons are now awful. Also, horrible for anyone to get dementia. (My gran had it.) But especially nasty for it to happen to someone of words.

He made me laugh a LOT and for that I am very grateful.
Rest in peace Terry Jones you funny man.

Seamus Mallon. Irish nationalist and man of peace during the Troubles. He helped to bring about the peace process, and never failed to condemn the violence of all involved. Honest, decent and principled.

We could do with a few more like him.

RIP.
