I just heard the news that British comedian and actor Tim Brooke-Taylor died today. Days ago I watched an interview with him and Bill Oddie. The Goodies was something I watched on the telly in my youth. The show's oddball mix (Brooke-Taylor, Oddie, and Graeme Garden) appealed to my still-developing wacky sense of humour.
It's so sad that a man who brought laughs to so many should die this way. As Eric Idle said in his tweet from minutes ago: "This fucking virus."
