A thoroughly nice bloke too and he was a big rugby league fan. I had the pleasure of his company, on occasion, watching Fulham RL in the '80s.
Maurice Roeves, wonderful actor. He was also in 'Escape to Victory', and played Matt Busby in an episode of the BBC documentary 'Surviving Disaster'.A face you'd certainly recognise, even if his name isn't familiar - the actor Maurice Roeves has died at the age of 83.
In over fifty years of television and film work, he memorably played Leeds United trainer Jimmy Gordon in 'The Damned United' (2009), Chief Supt Duckenfield in Jimmy McGovern's 'Hillsborough' (1996), Col Edmund Munro in 'The Last Of The Mohicans' (1992), and the character Vincent Diver in the tv mini-series 'Tutti Fruitti' (1987).

Spot on. He played more great guitar between 1966 and 1970 than anyother British guitarist has managed in a lifetime. Just played Then Play On and now onto Fleetwood Mac Live at the BBC. Sad day, but a wondrous legacy.For me the best British guitarist ever, bar none.
Many years ago I used to drink in a pub in Brentwood and Peter Green was a regular who would often provide musical entertainment. Needless to say he was incredible but also very unpretentious and a thoroughly decent man. Sadly, the pub, The Charles Napier is no longer with us either, having been demolished a few years ago to allow for road widening.Guitar great and Fleetwood Mac founder Peter Green has died aged 73.
Back when they were a "proper " band, Green was a legend.
A vital part of my favourite ever comedy, that being Porridge. He was so loved by those who worked on it, that an inmate , albeit one that was never seen was given the name ‘Lotterby’, as a form of respect. When Porridge was revived a few years ago, ‘Lotterby’ was a main character.Sydney Lotterby, director and producer of classic sitcoms such as Porridge, Last of the Summer Wine and Yes Minister, has died aged 93.
