I'm not sure I loved the show, but it was fascinating in an odd sort of way. We get PBS re-runs every weekday afternoon.

Capt. Peacock was seldom THE main story, but he was always involved and his formality kept the rest of them from being totally silly.

I always enjoyed the show, a really good Britcom. Frank Thornton played a pivotal role but it was truly a fine cast that even survived a few changes over the years. Only Nicolas Smith and Mike Berry are left of the main cast members and only Smith was there at the beginning. How very sad.

That's a product of TV, a bit of a price you pay as time passes. True of movies, sports, and life in general I suppose, but somehow those who are in your home every night take on a bit of something different.

Frank Thornton was a fine actor and played the role well. Without his character and the fine job he did, AYBS would have been a flash in the pan.

Spaw

Saw him as Duncan opposite Nicol Williamson and helen Mirren in Stratford - the Scottish play. years ago.

He was pretty damn good. I imagine Captain Peacock took about a tenth of his talent.

It funny how life never lets the world enjoy the best of us, and what we have to offer.

Oh, no! I love that show and still watch reruns. It doesn't matter how many times I see the episodes, they are still better than almost anything else on TV. I especially enjoy the musical production numbers which I imagine were done in the final episode of each season. He was part of an incredible ensemble cast.
