Liz Fraser of Carry On fame. Rather a miserable week I'm afraid to say. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-45449088

Really has been a shit week.
Small press creator Terry Wiley died today.
I'm sure some of you may know him.
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!

She had a voice like marbled chocolate and the natural charisma to steal a scene without even having to utter a word. More than that, she seemed to belong to that very rare band of people who never really grow old, even as she entered into her nineties. I doubt we'll ever see another Fenella Fielding. R.I.P.

A bad week for Carry On fans.

Fenella had been due to give a reading from her autobiography at Zedel (underground restaurant and bar near Piccadilly) tonight.

(Irrevocably transformed in my memory into Denis Nodens, host of It’ll Be Alright On The Nightgaunt, from the the genuinely funny CoC parody scenario The Shadow Of Frog’s Yoghurt.)
