Brian Wilde

I've just heard the news that Brian Wilde, famous as Mr Barrowclough in Porridge and Foggy Dewhurst in Last of the Summer Wine, has died. (BBC News: Summer Wine actor Wilde, 86, dies)

Both sitcoms were fantastic, and Porridge is rightly considered one of the all time best that this country has ever produced. Ironically of the four main cast members in Porridge he was the earliest born and lived the longest.
