Sad news. I was only thinking about him the other week and how old he was after seeing a clip of Reginald Perrin.

RIP. Was a true TV legend.

A truly excellent actor. He was never less than good.
He could play against type as he did in a particularly nasty episode of inspector morse
But for me it's Uncle Jimmy that stands out. First he played the eccentric character in Perrin and then followed up in the tremendous fairly secret army. I can highly recommend FSA.
A great career from a memorable actor. Thank you Sir.

As mentioned on the first post he also starred in the Bond movie "Tomorrow Never Dies" released in 1997 (cripes 23 years ago :eek:) as Admiral Roebuck with Judie Dench. Whilst it's a good age it's still very sad, R.I.P.
