Sad to say that the comedy and drama character actor Geoffrey Palmer, of Fairly Secret Army, Butterflies and As Time Goes By (and so many other popular series) has passed away. In many ways it's surprising that he never appeared in Dad's Army as he always seemed to be 'the type' who would have worked perfectly in the series. He did however appear alongside Arthur Lowe in Bless Me, Father, Pardon the Expression and Bill Brand.
93 years old, but a sad loss nonetheless. Never less than brilliant.
Oh, I remember him as an annoying health inspector in Fawlty Towers. I know he has done much much more but that was a good part. He insists on getting his fried sausages!😊 When he is reminded that the kitchen hasn’t been cleaned he just says: ”I’ll take my chances!”
I remember him also from ”Executive Stress” which was aired here in Scandinavia in the mid ’80ties. I liked it though I wasn’t very old. Mind you there wasn’t that many channels back then so you tended to watch whatever was on. I haven’t seen the show since so I don’t know what I would have thought about it today.
