Richard Briers RIP

Actor Richard Briers has passed away, aged 79 (CLICK). In a long and illustrious career, which included everything from Doctor Who to Shakespeare, his role as Tom Good in BBC TV's The Good Life won him millions of fans. Shown is that fabulous cast: Felicity Kendal, Richard Briers, Penelope Keith and Paul Eddington in The Good Life. Left is a photo of Richard with his CBE at Buckingham Palace in 2003. Despite its lack of journalists today, due to a strike, the BBC cobbled together a slide show of Richard's career (CLICK). The Telegraph has posted a more comprehensive slide show (CLICK) which includes Richard brandishing bra and panties to raise a titter from Raquel Welch in the film Fathom (1967).

Rest in peace you lovely man. Shame he didn't get a knighthood instead of some of the people who get it because they know the right person. He was one of our best actors. My condolences to the family. The Good Life was one of the best programmes.
