These days, you know it's past your bedtime when you see the little man in the corner doing sign language. Seems a bit unfair to deaf people, maybe they'd like an early night once in a while.
    When you've taped a show you really want to see but it is on in the middle of the night. And when you come to watch it the next day it has the sign language bloke on it. One of those situations where you can't be pissed off but you'd really like to be.

    I agree totally. And they seem like really nice people, just a bit small.

    They do seem to enjoy it. I think I'd be a bit less than enthusiastic after miming five episodes of Minder on the trot but they never seem to flag.

    I used to live 200 yds from PWL, and as I went to Dave Prowse's gym would hear loud Rick Astley booming out of the Genelecs.

    I have a vague recollection of him filming some 'Green Cross Code' stuff by where I worked in the eighties (maybe). For a fit bloke he had an awful lot of health issues. I read a 'fake news' article years ago saying he'd lost both legs. Mind you, tall men seem to get a lot of problems as they age. Two 6'5" mates of mine died of spinal cancer.

    He did have arthritis in various forms. Think he is still with us but must be a decent age now

    Yes Martin, he was there most evenings as were his sons often, and I even trained with him.

    He has had an ankle fused, (he has very big feet), and I hear that now he has lost the use of his arms, but what I admire is that he gave himself fully to what he did.
