I remember them announcing that on the 9.30 news on Radio 1.

So sad. He seemed so lovely and swoonsome. I recall my sister's Jackie had a poster of him in that week with the line "Wouldn't mind being locked up with him, eh girls?"

I can imagine that Jackie poster....!! Had a lovely face, didn't he? Shockingly young age to die.

Young Vic Reeves used to remind me of him a bit.

Remember Mum being very upset about this, when normally she doesn't really "do" celebrity and is self-contained about death (in a medical professional way). This one got to her, though.

He was a strong straight actor, too, Steve - if you ever get a chance to see Stephen Frears' Last Summer, I urge you to take it. Suggests that the career that lay ahead of him could have taken Richard is all sorts of interesting directions.

That’s what I meant he was so versatile and I think he would have been up there with the great actors

Richard attributed his looks to his Malaysian heritage. And by a lovely coincidence, when Kate Beckinsale gave birth to her daughter, a nurse popped into the delivery room to tell her Porridge was on BBC One.

She did say that literally not a day passes, even in LA, without someone telling her they loved her dad. She said she really appreciates it too.

I love that. I think I remember her saying it always happens when she goes to M&S. Just lovely.

Have never forgotten the shock when it happened. How can it be so long ago?

Just watched an old Armchair Theatre episode ‘Detective Waiting’ on YouTube.Clearly shows he was adept at straight roles. Will try and catch Last Summer. Sorely missed
