Sad to see Babs (or Dame Babs!) go. Always an effervescent presence in the Carry Ons. I wasn't too struck with her Dad's Army role, but that's because I felt she was too identifiable with the Carry On series and seemed a little 'out of her time'. I never saw her in EastEnders as it's a series I've never liked, but it's a testament to her talents and popularity that she was able to go from 'attractive bombshell' to character actress in a long career when many of her ingenue contemporaries just disappeared.
Of course, the real sadness is that her last years were affected with dementia. RIP.
