The star turns who entertained us for 60 years

This year's 60th anniversary celebrations of the Carry On films have been clouded by the deaths of stars Fenella Fielding and Liz Fraser, not to mention Blake's 7 tyrant Jacqueline Pearce and Broadway baby Carole Shelley - also valued members of the Carry On family.

Liz Fraser obituary

The actor Liz Fraser, who has died aged 88, specialised in comedy in a career that stretched from cough and spit parts in 1950s Ealing Studios films to a guest star suspect in the latest series of Midsomer Murders (2018). She also worked with Tony Hancock and Sid James, and starred in the classic I'm All Right Jack (1959) with Peter Sellers, but her long and varied career was almost inevitably overshadowed by her membership of the Carry On team.

The Great Yorkshire Fringe Launch Gala review

Crowd funding "Forgotten Heroes of Comedy"

Robert Ross has written books on the Carry On films, Fawlty Towers, Marty Feldman, The Goodies, Benny Hill, Frankie Howerd, Sid James, Monty Python - the list goes on and on and on. But his latest book Forgotten Heroes of Comedy is not being handled by a 'traditional' publisher. It is being 'crowd-funded' by Unbound.
