VALE TBT, OBE.
I was hugely saddened this morning to learn of the passing of Tim Brooke-Taylor, who alongside Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie so greatly enriched my childhood (and in some small measure every day since). This is the first time I’ve seen his name without smiling. And even now, the memories…
Tim was a gifted comedic performer (such timing!), whose decade-long contribution to The Goodies and longstanding (50+ years!) work on radio programmes I’m Sorry, I’ll Read That Again and I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue leaves a remarkable and supremely funny legacy.
By all accounts he was also a genuinely nice person, embodying a rare caveat to the adage, ‘Never meet your heroes.’ Truly, a terrible loss.
