Eric Sykes

Sad to hear of the death today of Eric Sykes. I remember as a schoolboy in the very early seventies watching Sykes, starring Eric Sykes, the wonderful Hattie Jacques, Derek Guyler as "Corky" the local bobby and many, many more. Wonderful television comedy, up there with Dad's Army, Steptoe and Son and 'Til Death Us Do Part.

Another great Lancastrian comedian leaves the stage:

Thanks for that Gregg, brightened up a very wet afternoon- Peter Sellers to boot !

Didn't he work with some incredible people Andrew? Remember getting excited when Sykes was due on as if it was yesterday rather than 40 years ago.
