Interesting character actor, always dependable, consistent, and funny. He'll be missed!
He was my favorite on the show. Just completely himself.
Thanks for posting this, Nan, and the links to the tributes. Onslow was a great favorite of mine. And very sad the intimely death of Geoffrey Hughes.
It is so sad.
I loved him as Onslow. Maeve Binchy just died too. Very said indeed.
First Maeve and now "Onslow" too? This is a sad week... :((((((
Yes, it is.
I am sad. But very grateful to you for "Keeping Up" with reading the British press for me! Thank you. He was way too young.
I so liked his character, and I can't help but feel his real self was equally kindly.
Oh! I din't realise until I saw your post, how sad, he's the same age as my husband, not old by any stretch. Gone far too soon. He was our favourite too, my husband just said, we first remember him when he played a dustbin man in Coronation Street, and then when he was in Heartbeat, but Onslow was our favourite character.Jane
I wish we got Coronation Street on dvds over here, and Heartbeat. There are so many British series that just aren't available.
Well, darn.I hadn't heard this.Loved Onslow.
