    The first I had heard about this. A sad loss indeed. He gave many wonderful performances, and always came across as a real gentleman in interviews. At least he leaves a great legacy behind.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    I find myself sadder about this loss than any of the losses last year. I remember him from so early on and he was so very, very good and versatile. I once had lunch with some friends and he was one of the guests. I fell instantly in love! He was such amusing company.

    Great memories for you, Sarah. I know what you mean about him, even though I was never lucky enough to have met him.
    He was around for so long, and I still remember him as Caligula in ‘I Claudius’, let alone his later roles. I just hope that he isn’t always referred to as ‘The actor who was in Harry Potter’. That makes me grit my teeth…x

    Yes. No two ways about it.

    We are some of them, I suppose! Well, at least you are. x

    I’m talking about teeth, not actors!

    HaHa! Silly me! x

The Stuff They Won't Include in Any Tourist Guide: The Real England

The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.
