I was very fond of him. I never really thought about it before but I guess he reminded me of my dad.
I see him so often when I'm flipping channels. I think it's great that he was getting so much steady work.
I guess death will put an end to that.

He was a pro. there was something human about him. quite a body of work when you think about it.

Agatha Christie approved of his Poirot, but Finney turned down later offers to repeat that character.

Reading in one of his more detailed obits from the weekend that AF was also hugely instrumental in getting Lindsay Anderson's If and O Lucky Man off the ground.

He was also excellent as the gay bus conductor in 1960s Dublin in the unfairly forgotten A Man of No Importance
