A sad and fond farewell to Richard Briers .

Thanks for all the fun, over the years - and the serious stuff as well. Smile

Ironically, only yesterday I was pondering getting a boxed set of The Good Life.........

He was a very talented man. Everything i saw him in was great and he just seemed to bring so much to the characer with his own personalty shining through

Quote:A sad and fond farewell to Richard Briers

Indeed.....Always struck me as being a very nice man and always under-rated as a serious actor, despite his comedy work being excellent.

What a terrible shame. He only said the other day he was suffering from smoking related COPD which is what got my father in the end. I did wonder how much longer he would go on as it is such a dreadful thing to have. He was such a wonderful, funny man and the Good Life was a fabulous series. Sad

One of my hero's for his role in the good life, i actually briefly met him in real life once in Richmond, he was a lovely guy - humble and friendly. Warmest wishes of great memories and thanks for a super contribution to enthusiasm and optimism into our society.

I grew up watching the good life and I am certain it played a small but significant part in me leaving the rat race and buying a small holding in rural Hungary Grin

So sad.....a lovely man, who made watching TVa pleasure....... I wonder how many smokers will heed the warning though?.......I am currently dealing with a very close relative who has cancer of the throat and severe heart and circulation problems......

The Good Life was without doubt one of the funniest things the BBC ever did. RIP Richard.

Yet another wonderful British actor leaves us, he could make you laugh, he could make you cry, he will be sorely missed.

A good actor and all round nice bloke. I thought he was great in"ever decreasing circles"

I can only echo the sentiments above.

Though "The Good Life" is a classic, I too think that "Ever Decresaing Circles" was great, though much less well known.

I think I am right in saying that Mr. Briers said the latter was his favourite.
