I'm spending a year dead for tax reasons.
15th December 2002
As you probably know by now if you know of Ronnie Barker, he has unfortunatly died aged 76.
For me he was one of the great legends of British Sitcom and will be very saddly missed by millions here in the UK and the world over. I figure this is a good time for a thread to discuss the great work he has featured in (such as Porridge, Open all Hours and The Two Ronnies) and to share in his loss.

Although I heard he had been having problems for a while, it came as a great shock to me, and is truly a great loss for everyone.
Creater of some of the greatest comedy sketches in existance, rest in peace Ronnie.
i have grown up watching porridge and open all hours and i think it is a great loss for all. i feel privelidged to have been able to see some of the funniest T.V. moments in history while he was still alive and he is probably making them laugh wherever he is right now he will be missed by all TO RONNIE R.I.P.
and the crazy thing is.......i've never even heard of him
