    That's sad . Hopefully they will start showing her old shows instead of bladdy Fools and Horses and whatever on permanent repeat ...

    I love to see Bread again from the start ..

    Sad news, she was quite a bit older than I thought.

    I hope the BBC dig out one of her better shows for a tribute.

    I like the earlier series of Bread, but by the end the whole thing was beginning to wear very thing.

    I liked Shifty, with his money making schemes such as selling fruit from a Hearse.

    To learn of Carla passing away is really sad news indeed. What a fantastic talent Carla was - helping to launch Nicholas Lyndhurst's Career is one thing as well as Bread and The Liver birds and of course Butterflies that I will always associate with Carla. For me Carla lunched sop many careers and could just change the type of writing like a driving wheel and all of them became great their own right - as too did the largely forgotten Lov which starred a certain Michael Angelis. Sadly I don't think Lov had the chance grow, as it was too similar to Bread them all sitting around a table and things being based on Family like Bread - but to me all the stuff Carla wrote sadly we will never see again - this is true writing that any actor can "slot into' because the scripts are so good. I doubt that we will ever see writers of Carla's class again and if so who may they be (if at all?), which really makes me worry for the future of TV in general

    I found Lov a bit confusing, it didn't have many of the quirky things that made Bread special, so ended up almost a comedy drama.
