Such a funny man and seemed to be a thoroughly nice individual.  All these 'friends' that we hear on the radio every day give such joy to us in these awful days.  RIP - may his family recall him with smiles not tears.

Just wanted to say how sad to hear of Tim's death today another Covid19 victim.

I for one feels as though he has been part of my life forever  with The Goodies, and then as I grew up and appreciated I'm Sorry I haven't a Clue.
I have never had a more enjoyable night out than enjoying all the silliness that went with an ISIHAC recording for BBC Radio4 on so many occasions.

Still I bet he will be having fun  up there with Humph and Willie Rushton!

It's so very sad. So many memories of the Goodies and his later contributions.

Sad news indeed.

Also very sad to read that Stirling Moss has passed away age 90 after a long illness. I remember seeing some footage of a TV interview when he admitted that he had once been stopped by a policeman who asked the common question of the time "Who do you think you are? Stirling Moss?" I would have loved to have seen the policeman's face!
