    Another fine actor dies aged 88 years. I really used to like him.

    Classic comedy which the BBC will never broadcast again.

    Perhaps because it wasn't as PC as It could have been.

    Windsor was a great character actor. The only trouble was he could only play one character! He did a great job in It ain't half hot mum because basically that was his character.

    His performance on the video for his number one hit single with Don Estells, Whispering Grass however was fist-gnawingly, buttock-clenchingly cringeworthy.

    Very sad. From a part of Wales that im from. A shame that show can’t be shown in tv anymore. It wasn’t nasty. It was fun. He also starred in a great show called Grand Slam which is still very funny!
