    He had a quad bike accident in the late 1990s. Not sure that he fully recovered from it. Don't know if that had an affect on his early death. RIP, he gave us some great laughs.

    Bottom and young ones are some my all time favorite shows, sad to hear about his passing.

    I note all his TV series are ranking highly on Amazon best sellers at the moment. I'm finding it hard to believe that people would just suddenly go online and buy his various TV series just because he's passed on (sure some will, but enough to affect the *top* sellers???), leaving me wondering if Amazon are being insensitive twats and artificially inflating the true rankings.
