I never really liked James Bond but I liked Roger's Bond because he brought himself to the role,  a really funny, gentle man. Very sad news on a dreadfully sad day.

Just thought I'd stick this short clip up as Richard Kiel was mentioned.

And I could do with something to make me smile today with all the sad news. (Although this is not really the appropriate thread for that)

Roger Moore was always my favourite Bond as well, doc.

Which has been debated lots of times over the years. (Not here. Pub chat)

I was thinking of him for some reason yesterday so before he died.

It was quite scandalous at the time - back in the mists of time when I was a child - that he was still married to the singer Dorothy Squires but was living with another woman and they had two children. He wanted to marry her but, in those days if one partner refused to agree to a divorce, the other had to wait for seven years before it could be granted.

Some of us might remember him even if, like me, it's only because he was once married to Cher, the third of his six or seven wives!

Sad to hear about John Noakes, he WAS Blue Peter to me Sad
Suffered from Alzheimers for some time and was living in Spain I believe? Poor chap, but his family feel it a merciful release. RIP

Yes, he went missing from his home in Spain in 2015.

You've lost me there, Chrissie.

Not all posts need a reply. If you've asked me something and I haven't replied, give me a shove (metaphorically) to wake me up.

I bet we all remember Alec Gilroy. Also liked Roy Barraclough doing those skits with Les Dawson.

Hi Freedom, my apologies. I've had a bad few days but that is no excuse so I am sorry.

This one is a shock but unless you follow football then you probably haven't heard of him:

Former Newcastle United midfielder Cheick Tiote has died aged 30 after collapsing during training in China, a spokesman for the player has announced.

RIP. The old classic Batman series was one of my faves as a nipper.

This chap isn't dead but he's running out of his 9 lives:

The 1960s Batman series was a favourite of mine too.

Here's a short clip, not that we ever saw it in colour back then.

Don't panic - he isn't really dead (or is he?) - I just thought I'd put this conspiracy theory here. This started long before the Internet so you can't blame that for all conspiracy theories.

Just three of many links about it.

Great innings though.

Sad to hear Brian Cant has died. Remember Play School so well, watched every episode with my son. Big Ted, Little Ted, Humpty and Jemima and going through the round window was so gentle and appropriate for little children. At the time Brian seemed to be the mainstay to me, probably because of his voice and smile. Goodness I'm surprised I remember it so well... RIP Brian.
