No offence to Whitney but I'll miss this guy even more. Great Irish actor with some very memorable roles. Genius comic turn in Fawlty Towers and fantastically funny in Waking Ned (Ned Divine in some countries).
Played one of my favourite literary characters in Strumpett City (Rashers Tierney) and was the only decent performance in Tim Burtons Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Information that , if carefully stored , would last for millennia! And no batteries required.'
