Obituary: Richard Briers


Cruelly, his final screen appearance was a cameo in a Danny Dyer film, for God's sake. :(

He couldn't grumble though, he had a good life.

Was it Mr Ben he narrated? I know his voice from somewhere else.

If you use "should of", "would of" or "could of", you are a moron.

And, of course, Briers was also the voice of Penfold, from 'Dangermouse'.

That was David Jason.

Sign outside our local butchers. Watership Down: You've read the book...you've seen the film..now eat the stew.

Briers has been in so many things: The Good Life, Ever Decreasing Circles, Monarch of the Glen, Morse, and many many more. He also played Bertie Wooster and Bob The Builder. Sadly missed but sure of an enduring presence on the repeat channels,

Life is like a sewer: What you get out of it depends on what you put into it.

He's done some other Wodehouse stuff too; Uncle Dynamite, for one.
