    Yes, I saw this last night on Facebook. Very sad news, I particularly remember him from the comedy series "Rosie" from the 70's.

      Sad news. I first remember TH as the conniving Heinz Muller in the mini-series Holocaust who takes a fancy to the Meryl Streep character who's husband has been sent to a concentration camp. And then, of course, he was the voice of the farmer in the animated film Chicken Run.

        I saw him several times when the was at the National Theatre, I guess more than 30 years ago, and he was a fine character actor with a much wider range than you might imagine.

          A fine actor who could play straight or comic with equal aplomb.
          Was very good as Farthingale, David Hemming's cynical fellow Teacher in Unman Wittering & Zigo 1971

            Very sad to hear this. I remember him from Where the Heart Is, and as the voice of Mr Tweedie the Chicken Pie Maker in Chicken Run.

                Curiously on the day before this was announced we watched an early episode of Frost with TH in it as Frost's sidekick. On looking at his career record on imdb what a wonderfully varied career he had.

                  Sad to hear this and about his last illness. Very fine actor with a nice touch for comedy. The sight of his name on a cast list always started a smile on my face.

                      The name is familiar, but can't put any detail to it.

                      I think the first series I remember was Rosie.

                      He's been in many films and TV series over the years, from memory recently Doctors.

                      RIP Tony
