The Binman Cometh

Geoffrey Hughes passed last week; he had played Eddie Yeats, the binman, on the incomparable Coronation Street in the 70's and the 80's of some long ago previous century.

Apparently - if all the encomia are to be believed - he was also the voice of Paul in the Beatles' film The Yellow Submarine.

The news quite bowled me over. For a bit I thought it was Geoffrey Palmer (of As Time Goes By) that had passed... not that it would have changed matters, but I could not get poor Judi Dench out of my mind for a bit, and I'd much rather she would not take up residence there.
