Oh, that is such sad news :( - loved her in so many things she was in, also not forgetting that she was one of the 1960s Dolly Birds. Lovey

RIP

Oh No.
RIP Una.
And, on a somewhat more selfish note, I was thinking of casting her in something.

She was magnificent. A series of iconic roles that ensure she'll never be forgotten.

She was indeed a great actress and hugely loved by me in the original* Worzel Gummage playing Aunt Sally. I was reading Cliff Richard's autobiography a few weeks ago and he writes about Una in a touching way (as well as boasting how many houses he bought his late mother and sisters over the years, but hey ...)

*I don't want to watch the Mackenzie Crook remake, it looks awful; I may check out the original on BritBox though.

Agree - I think it besmirches what was a perfect, could not be bettered, series. Jon Pertwee was superb, and with the rivals of Aunt Sally and for short while Saucy (Babs Windsor) Nancy, what more could you want.

I may well now invest in a DVD and wallow in it.

I assume that you're not a fan of streaming HGT? Mind you, the older and crankier I get the more I hate the broadcaster's woke cuts and trigger warnings so that's why Logic Towers is now filling up with more DVDs.

RIP to a great lady.

What's streaming. I much prefer a DVD, and I now revive my original thread, as it's suddenly dawned on me that about 10 years ago I bought the original series on VHS from a bargain bucket outside some shop, and later transferred them to DVD.

So, thanks for reminding me BN ;)
