But for all that, he was best remembered for his naration in Roobarb and Custard.

The sponsored ad "Find Richard Briers Dead" below this thread, is somewhat distasteful.

RIP Richard.

I liked to watch the Good Life, it sounds like it was Emphysema through smoking all is life that killed him

I don't know which ad you saw, but it will have linked to this news story - what's distasteful about that?

Thank you. I haven't seen the ad, but you and Aitchbee are right - it's in bad taste. I'll get it stopped asap.

Those ads

Are contextual Google ads, over which we have no control. All we can do is ask that Google excludes the advertisers - in this case Ask.com and supaprice - from advertising on our site. We will of course do that, but they might not disappear for a day or so.

Why such services would want to advertise in such a tasteless way is beyond me. It's pathetic.

The speed at which this complaint has been dealt with with is a credit to the memory of Briars' Martin character.

Ha! I was always on the side of the Peter Egan character, for obvious reasons.

Richard Briers was Terry-Thomas' cousin, you know. And one of the few people to remain a constant friend and support throughout his cousin's late-life illness and poverty. It doesn't change the fact that he was a fine serious and straight actor, but it is nice to know that he was a good egg, too.

A national treasure, cherished and missed.

I always thought his best popular role was the one for which he is probably least remembered, George Starling in "The Marriage Lines.
