    A shame. 'Whatever Happened...' was one of the best shows ever made.

    I was curious about the reasons for the fall out between Bewes and Bolam.
    Most of the obits don't go into details, but got this from the BBC site ...

    "In 1975 there was a film spin-off which proved to be the last time the pair worked together. Bolam was famous for guarding his privacy and was furious when Bewes let slip to a newspaper that Bolam's wife, the actress Susan Jameson, was pregnant.
    After a fraught phone call the two did not speak to each other again. Bolam was so incensed that he refused to appear on an edition of This Is Your Life, which featured his former acting partner."

    Seems a bit OTT, doesn't it.

    Hi Jerry ,

    I was reading also Bolam didn't like him when filming the show - if asked in the street wheres bob he would reply He's Dead..! Nice.. Bewes was poor in comparison bolam never grated the rights to repeats for years which would earn bewes 4000 per episode...

    Damn shame will watch the film of Whatever later...

    I read that Rodney was keen to re-kindle the friendship (!) Somehow I don't think that would have been my approach - still, what do I know?

    Yes, very sad, I also liked what ever happend...
    Maybe the tension was always there, which made the characters that much more real.
    Either way a sad loss, David Cassidy also gone this week.
