Shame, we actually enjoyed the new series, won't be much point without him.

Will we have who shot JR all over again...?

He was however one of soaps better baddies that we all loved to hate...

What will "Swellen" do without him? Actually I may be getting old but I liked his mum.

Bing-alau. So did I. They don't make them like that any more.

  Quickbeam 19:24 PM 24 Nov 12

Oh, I get it now... Sue Ellen...

  flycatcher1 20:35 PM 24 Nov 12

No! Barbara Bel Geddes.

His mother was Mary Martin

Now I don't get it.

A194 I regret that you are wrong but also right.

In Dallas JR's Mother was Barbara Bel Geddes. ( Until she died. )

JR is really Larry Hagman and his Mother was Mary Martin.

I am embarrassed to know such detail but I had a thing about Barbara Bel Geddes in my distant youth.

Bearing in mind that he admitted to drinking five bottles of champagne a day I think his liver did extremely well to keep him going for so long.

He was on his second liver - but appears to be one shot too many that killed him.

He had a good run and brought pleasure to a lot of people so RIP an we'll enjoy the re-runs.
