hi Windsor
no....I haven't heard anything about him (other than whats already been posted here) . I was purely interested in what he was up to . I presume he is still at
Brinsworth ?
Since I was last a regular here , my work situation has taken a slight turn for the worst (so no SKY now...economies had to be made) . Therefore I cant watch him on GOLD like I used to......


Man About The House is currently being repeated on ITV3...


To be replaced by Man about the Hearse?

As far as I can tell there's been no solid news since that photo story in the Daily Mail in 2009.(And I do remember how that story set this forum all aflutter).
Chances are that he'll be around for years to come.

I'm guessing a few of us regularly Google the man and trawl nowt. Nice to see our common room/favourite thread, bouncing back, mind!

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Now if ANYONE has to be the successor to Dunn, surely Dick O must be it?

On the one hand Dickie O does seem to interest a lot of Deathlisters the way Clive Dunn did.
On the other hand, like Clive Dunn, his retirement does seem to be very quiet and it doesn't generate a lot of news.

What were we thinking? He had a birthday (68) a week ago and we ignored it.

Doubtless there was cholesterol rich cake consumed in Brinsworth House; go well Dickie!

HOT NEWS!!!!

Just over six months ago someone posted the end of a lacklustre interview with Terry Wogan, first screened in 1989.

It's Dickie O comeback time, or summat:

I've been reading this thread and.......

No-one seems to have noticed or pointed out that Robin Tripp (name of his character in "Man About the House" and "Robin's Nest") could very easily be mis-spoken (especially if drunk) as Ribin Tropp.......

See, there's a Nazi connection in everything if you look hard enough.

In fact Dick was born almost exactly a year (minus a week) before a very much more famous Nazi committed suicide. Sigh, if only it he had been born a year later I could have even speculated about him being the reincarnation.....

I'm guessing he is the sort of guy who has good days and bad days. None of which changes in any way the obvious trajectory that he still has many years to live. We just need word about major health issues to be certain to think about listing him for a real reason.

I think the problem is no-one was ever as good as getting info about him as BHB, and since the master-baiter left it's all gone a bit quiet.

Dickie O's stroke was serious to the point of leaving him in need of sheltered accomodation several years ago, though. There hasn't been much evidence of improvement. He can walk, talk etc. but everything is in slow motion. So, he's clearly coming from much further back than Taverner was.
