Just read that Derek Fowlds has died. Excellent in Yes Minister & Yes Prime Minister. And had one of the best lines in sitcom history when they discussed newspaper readers on Yes Prime Minister.

Every sitcom wants a scene or joke like that which is remembered forever. It's up there with 'Don't tell him Pike', Fletcher's 'What from here?', Victor's '4291', Frank Spencer on rollerskates, Delboy falling through the bar. It's iconic.

The beeb should show this tonight as a tribute. Or the one where Sir Humphrey makes comments about the unemployed on mike and Bernard has the tape. Or the one where BW has the key between no 10 and no11. Or the one where BW finds out Sir Humphrey gave govt land away....

That's the other thing that has come up a lot today. You should find a Basil Brush clip.

The joke predates Yes Minister; they nicked it. I wish I knew who wrote it, but it was on a Christmas card we received from Felix Dennis c.1978
