    Are we talking about TV or films or both?

    Kenneth Williams
    John Cleese (Faulty Towers, hilarious)

    I liked Terry Scott in Terry and June, especially the one where he produced 'The King and I'. Practically the entire cast of Dad's Army, and Windsor Davis in 'It ain't half hot mum!'

    Dad's Army is timeless. We watched a repeat last Saturday and my 7 year old son and 9 year daughter belly laughed louder than they would at anything they'd watch on kids TV.

    I was too young to see Dad's Army first time round, but really got into it when it was repeated almost constantly from 1989 to 1995.

    Rik Mayall
    Ade Edmondson
    Nigel Planer
    Christopher Ryan

    It's a shame that after "The Young Ones" it seems as if all four of the cast never appeared on the same show together even though Nigel Planer was in "Filthy Rich and Catflap" and Christopher Ryan had a recurring role in "Bottom." Personally, I think Nigel Planer would have made an excellent Spudgun.

    Kenny Everett; one of many lol

    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.

    Leonard Rossiter in Rising Damp. He created one of the very best British characters of all time. No one could match his intensity.
