There has been a pantheon of wonderful British stage, tv and film actors since the war and Geoffrey Palmer was right there amongst them.

A joy to watch and listen to - a master of his craft.

Hi KJ. Good to hear from you.

Nice to remember Geoffrey Palmer, a distinctive personality with an easy to recognise voice across a variety of comedy. I think his biggest hit was probably Butterflies, a comedy drama. I'm a big fan of Reggie Perrin, but I think I most remember him for its loose spin off, A Fairly Secret Army. I recall him in an episode of The Avengers made in the mid sixties, but had a face that looked more apt as he got older.

Des O'Connor 88, a week after a fall. It never ceases to amaze me the effect on general health that a fall can have as people get older.

Feels like a football team of ex-players have died this year.
