Or 85*.

Either way.



*Some BBC reports were saying 85 but they've since been corrected to 91.

RIP. Loved watching 'All Creatures...' on PBS back when I was young.

Let's be cheerful. It's not like he died young. A life well lived.

RIP

I'm peeved that the media I've seen are reporting it as "Harry Potter actor Robert Hardy". It seems that if you ever appeared in a Harry Potter film then that's the most important thing you ever did.

It is the most high profile thing he did by some considerable distance.

I always enjoyed his performances.

He was great in 'Hot Metal'. Seemed like a really OTT tongue-in-cheek performance.

Also played a right evil shit in one of the Morses. Can't remember which one.

Yes, I was (I'd no idea he was in that crap but then a lot of excellent actors were too). Same when Richard Griffiths died.
