    Default Bill Maynard

    RIP Bill Maynard aged 89

    Probably best known for Greengrass in the tv series Heartbeat & his own tv show Selwyn Froggit; Bill will be sadly missed

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    Very sad news about Bill Maynard's passing. He was a really fine actor. He was great in Oh, No, It's Selwyn Froggitt! and The Gaffer. RIP Bill Maynard.

    Wow , Selwyn Froggatt ?

    I presumed he'd died decades ago for some reason .

    Wonder why we never see the old series and many other great old comedies either ...

    Bill also played the chef wearing a sweaty vest, in a restaurant, in the movie spin off of Man About the House

    Maynard had always given me the illusion that he was from Yorkshire (hence the YTV sitcoms and Heartbeat), but he actually came from Surrey (I think) and lived in Leicestershire.

    Just imagine if that poster for Maynard's Wine Gums were not displayed when he walked past it in London many decades ago - he probably would have had a different stage name!

    I saw him in the Bless This House film, and I think he also appeared in one of those Robin Askwith (who also appeared in the Bless This House film) Confessions films as well.

    And to think that he tried to stop Tony Benn from becoming MP for Chesterfield at that 1984 by-election.
    I am a man (just in case anyone asks).
