And by now I’m sure most of you have heard about the passing of the amazing Richard Briers. Briers played the Chief Caretaker in the seventh Doctor story Paradise Towers. Briers touched generations of people and his death has had a huge impact on the showbiz world.

Both Elspet Gray and Richard Briers will be greatly missed and our thoughts are with their family and friends.
