Obituaries of Note

Hywel Bennett obituary: Beloved actor who rose to fame as a sitcom star 


Robert Hardy: Harry Potter and All Creatures Great and Small star dies

If Hardy isn't a household name, you will recognize his face, as he has been nearly ubiquitous on British television and film.

Bennett starred in a sitcom that was never shown in the United States.  The only reason I was able to see it was because I grew up on the Canadian border and it was shown on the CBC.  It was a success because Bennett was perfect for the role.  I can't imagine anyone else making a go of it.
