Likely Lad Rodney Bewes pleaded with former co-star James Bolam to end 40-year rift in last interview before his death.

He was in Dr. Who as well.

Neutral yes, it is sad. Ive been deliberately skipping past this thread Sad Seems its this part of the year people are popping off more than Summer or Spring. Makes for a reflective Christmas.

{{Better than not remebering these folk- and the happiness or effect they had on lives.

Sad to see Rodney Bewes died, I was to young for the Likely Lads but I used to watch Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads with my Dad as a kid. Like a lot of 70's stuff it had that odd mix of humour and harsh social reality of a pretty grim time.
Great theme tune too. }}}

I concur with the sentiment above, but a recent death that hit me a bit awkwardly was that of Ursula K. Le Guin. I went through the Earthsea saga this summer, and while it was written with a YA audience in mind, it was certainly something very special. (The Ghibli movie, while gorgeously animated, did not capture it at all.)

I've read a number of works by Ursula LeGuin, but not the EarthSea trilogy. I think her thinking was strongly influenced by her anthropologist parents.

I'd recommend it, it creates its complete own fantasy world, while keeping things very simple. It is something special. Actually it is more than a triology now, as she wrote an additional two novels, Tehanu and The Other Wind, and several related short stories. Smile

Meeting your idols is a risky business – as Flaubert notes, the gold paint tends to come off on your fingers – but my 90 minutes chatting with Ursula only convinced me that the gold was genuine. She was not a glad sufferer of fools, it was clear, and you’d not want to cross her, but her graciousness that afternoon was unflagging. I gushed, of course. I told her how her Earthsea books had, as a boy, shown me how I wanted to spend my life – crafting worlds as real, as full and as irresistible as hers, or die trying. (Ursula observed that you could get away with princes and wizards in the 1960s and 70s, but by the 21st century they had become “cute”.)
