He probably had the best character in that show, and there was some strong competition elsewhere. It's not even on the useless Channel 4 "iplayer" either.

It is.

Surprised how well Patricia Routledge looks in the trailer for the Channel 4 programme on Beatrix Potter. Having been out of the limelight for several years and now being in her late 80s I would have expected her to look frailer. Also clearly still has her marbles.

talking of Patricia Routledge, Fans of Drop the Dead Donkey will be sad to hear that the actor David Swift , who played  Henry Davenport in every episode of the series has died at 85. He was the brother of Clive Swift who was Hyacinth Buckets husband on Keeping up Appearances http://david.swift.muchloved.com/

The guy who does the tube announcements gets national mourning but you can't find a single newspaper article about David Swift!

That is the kind of thing that would make Henry blow his top.

 

Better late than never.

Well the programme was poking fun at journalists and you know how pompous and sensitive they are...like Henry Davenport!
