"The Not-So-Late-Show with Greg Mitchell" will hopefully return in some form, somewhere soon.
Unlikely to be on Roch Valley Radio though.

Stay tuned . . .

Well the gang of three from Yes Minister/Yes Prime Minister are now reunited in the great cabinet office of the skies. Paul Eddington, Nigel Hawthorne and now Derek Fowlds.

Three superb actors, who made Yes Minister/Yes Prime Minister one of the great sitcoms of the 20th century.
RFWS, Ben Shatliff and Markymark gave kudos

I shouldn't laugh, but the BBC article quotes Basil Brush giving his sympathies as if he's an actual person (or fox, anyway).

Derek was a superb actor. Bernard provided some of the best scenes ever on YPM.

RIP

I always thought he was very underrated as Bernard. He stole some scenes especially this one

Oh don't be such a misery guts. I found Basil's tweet touching considering the wonderful relationship he had on screen with 'Mr Derek'.

You do realise its effectively tradition to paint Mr(?) Brush as real, a principle which dates back to the 1960s?

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the tweet per se, and the 'indentity' that it's named with, and I agree it is very touching, but news articles need to be a bit more factual.It would have been fine if they'd just cut and pasted the screenshot of the tweet alone

Like Neil says, Basil has always been spoken about as if real. It goes right back to the original performer who refused interviews all his life because he wanted to keep the magic alive.

If they'd used a quote from Sooty, I'd agree it was ridiculous.

Because Sooty can't talk.
