RIP Robert Hardy
I hate in when this blog starts to look like nothing but a list of obituaries, but it's been a terrible week for losses, and today it's been announced that we first lost Hywel Bennett and now Robert Hardy at the grand age of 91.
Hardy was a real childhood favourite of mine thanks to his performance as Siegfried Farnon in All Creatures Great and Small, the BBC's long running adaptation of the James Herriot novels. The character may have been irascible and full of bluster (a trademark of many a Hardy role) but he possessed an exceptional talent that ensured the character was loveable.
