I posted this elsewhere, but feel it deserves a wider audience.

He also did the voices for Roobarb and Custard, the greatest ever children's cartoon (after "Jaime and the magic torch" and "chorlton and the wheelies", natch)

That's sad.

I always thought there was a subplot of swinging / adultery in the Good Life, the relationships between corresponding husbands and wives seemeed very flirtatious.

This makes me so sad. Wanting to be Margo Ledbetter will never be the same.

Felicity Treacle Kendall and Richard Sugar Flavoured Snot Briers were nothing but a pair of reactionary stereotypes, confirming the myth that everyone in Britain is a loveable middle class eccentric! And I hate it! Bloody bloody bloody!

Fatuousness aside, goodbye Mr Briers. I like to think he was basically Tom Good in real life as well.

Was he flattened by a ton of invisible lead soup?

"Can we stand around and eat pies while they're being flattened like flies, swatted by the tail of a mad, invisible horse? Of course not."

I guess that dashes my hopes of any new Good Life episodes.

And now the news won't shut up about it...

I've never heard of him. No, seriously.

Incoming downvotes, my flame retardant suit must be around here somewhere.
