Comedian Tim Brooke-Taylor has died after contracting Covid-19.
The BBC obituary:
Tim Brooke-Taylor was at the heart of British comedy for more than six decades – with his words, wit and quickfire japery making millions of people laugh.
His comedic roots lay in the Cambridge Footlights, where his contemporaries included John Cleese and the two men he later collaborated with on the TV show The Goodies – Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie.
He began his broadcasting career on BBC radio, quickly developing a reputation as a performer and scriptwriter.
Probably best known as one of the members of the anarchic Goodies, he was also a long-standing panellist on Radio 4’s, I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue. . .
