The radio said he was 92 but he'd played old men in the theatre and on TV since he was 12 years old. Brilliant actor, much loved and full of fun to the end. RIP.

RIP. I loved Dad's Army. :(

The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

Not just Clive Dunn, but a very funny one.


Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.
