Another great gone. Brilliant with Les Dawson. Great character on the Street, long before it turned into the claptrap that it is now. R.I.P.

"Alec Gilroy" R.I.P. :(

Yes, a better show in the past. Sometimes the best thing in an episode now is the theme music, and the ghost of Minnie Caldwell's cat Bobby. I go through not watching it for long stretches and then trying again just because it's there, but they've done so many ratings-grabber stories they've ruined some of the characters for me.

Very sad to hear about Roy's passing. He was a fixture for so many years on our TV screens in a host of shows. A true professional in whatever he did, whether comic or dramatic. I first remember seeing him in Pardon my Genie in the early 70s, which I loved as a kid. RIP Roy.
