RIP DAVID KELLY

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.

I'll always remember him in Robin's Nest and an in an episode of Fawlty Towers.

Oh, he was so utterly charming in Fawlty Towers and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. :(
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.
