It saddens me to hear of the death of actor Sam Kelly, who has died today at the age of 70. I, like many people, will remember him from the brilliant Allo ‘Allo (1982-1992) where he played the bumbling Nazi, Captain Hans Geering. His comedic talents were certainly prevelant in Allo ‘Allo but he will also be remembered for sitcoms such as Barbara (1995-2003), On The Up (1990-1992) and the excellent Porridge (1974-1977). Kelly also had guest roles in Midsomer Murders (1997-present) and Inspector Morse (1987-2000). Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.
