"Trigger" . Rated by David Jason and others as probably the best actor in the series.
Very sad to see his passing.

Caco - Rodney was 'Dave'. Don't think anyone ever knew, or was supposed to know why. Sad news indeed.

Am I mistaken, or is there an unusually high number of familiar faces disappearing these last few months?

Most, it seems to me, in the second half of their 60s :eek:

Very sad. Loved old Trigger. He had some great lines, loved the one about his road sweeper's broom.
He'd had it since new... only14 heads and 16 handles replaced!

RIP

RIP, Trigger, you gave me many a laugh, not only on F & H. And on one episode of Dr Who you were quite frightening. Until the Cybermen got you.*

there an unusually high number of familiar faces disappearing these last few months

Yes there is , and an unusually high number of familiar and much-loved old faces popping up in the law courts, too.

* I really should get out more on Saturday evenings.

Indeed a brilliant character actor. RIP

Trigger's broom - still makes me chuckle.

Loved him as the brutally honest farmer in "Vicar of Dibley"

Nice little role as one of Smiley's team in the film version of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

His dad played the classics master in Lindsay Anderson's If.

(not a lot of people know that!)

Trigger was such a funny character, played so well by Roger Lloyd-Pack.

"If it's a girl they're calling it Sigourney after an actress, and if it's a boy they're naming him Rodney after Dave!"

Makes me want to watch a whole load of episodes now.

You're quite right, we seem to be running out of famous people.

That's what I find scary at my age - especially as my pinup of the mid 1960's, Alexandra Bastedo ("The Champions") also died a few days ago.

My wife called through from the other room to say Trigger had died. I totally misunderstood and said that he died years ago and had been stuffed. She of course was passing on the sad news about Roger Lloyd-Pack and I was thinking of Roy Roger's horse.:\

I used to frequent a pub (The Carpenters in Efail Isaf) that had a death list raffle, a number of older / ill celebs etc on it, pound a go every week until someone pegged it, I won it in 2000 with Barbara Cartland, 225 pounds IIRC.

Morbid but fun.

I won one when the queen mum died in 2002.

As an avowed royalist I felt a bit guilty, but I still pocketed the dosh!

I knew of a chap who backed the Queen Mum each year.

She really didn't want to him to win.

RIP Trigger, anyway.
