He was best known for Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em and is clearly an old uncle of @PowerButchi

I thought Michael Crawford had pegged it for a minute there, you mean It Ain't Half Hot Mum surely?

Can’t believe both of the stars of Some Like It Hot have passed away now.

EDIT - just remembered why I was talking about Windsor Davies the other day. My mum responded  to something with “oh dear. How sad. Going to bed,” and then claimed to have no memory of the catchphrase she was paraphrasing.

Probably least known for that to be fair. Anyway, massive fan of his. Grand Slam is one of my favourite films. RIP, lovely boy.

Surprised he was only 88 to be honest.  Unique voice and a big part of my childhood.  RIP.

I have really vague recollections of it as my gran watched it but I was only a nipper at the time. I want to try and find it online. I imagine it'll be on Dailymotion.

Some sort of cruel rumor that Dick Miller has passed away. Clearly impossible. If so, a spectacular innings for everyone's favorite character actor.

Joe Dante has confirmed it on Twitter. :( 

The ultimate bit part guy and lucky charm for the Corman clan.

RIP Murray Futterman (I'm gonna have a mini Joe Dante marathon.)

Jeremy Hardy, comedian who'd been on QI, Mock the Week amongst many others has died of cancer.

Oh fucking hell that's awful. Such an insightful and funny man. 

Fuck QI and Mock the Week, Radio 4 should play nothing but his shows. He's probably responsible for more of their content than anyone else.

That's a shock. I liked him, particularly on I'm Sorry, I Haven't A Clue and as the Laird on You'll Have Had Your Tea.

RIP. 57's no age.
