Loved Richard Briers - a great actor and comedian what a legacy he leaves behind him.

He also played wonderful villains. For example...

Spoiler: show
He plays James Farlow in an episode of New Tricks, who poisons Jack Halford with concentrated vitamin A, I think...


And, of course, there was the Chief Caretaker, from the Doctor Who story Paradise Towers, which was where, of course, I saw him first...





Was it me, or did he often play these roles that had an almost childish nature?

Anyway, RIP. :(
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.
