The one series of his sitcom "Colin's Sandwich" was very underrated, IMO. 

 

Funny man, great shame. Always looked like a heart attack waiting to happen though.  :(

I'd see him on rare occassions huffing and puffing up and down the street outside the Marquis of Granby. He'd have a big coat over his big frame, sucking on a big cigar and looking thoroughly irritated. On any one of those occassions, the phrase heart attack waiting to happen, was thoroughly apt.

He was on Mastermind a year or two ago and he looked awful.

Didn't he have a stroke or something? I remember he had trouble speaking clearly but then I'm sure I saw him on something a year or two later and he was fine again.

 

RIP.

For some reason they filmed a lot of the Alas Smith and Jones sketches in Addlestone near me .... No idea why , perhaps they lived in St George's hill weybridge or something?

Not the 9 o'clock news was a great show ... Hand built by Robots its still one of my favourites :)

I was trying to think of the sitcom where he was 'Colin', so thanks.

I concur, I thought that it was really funny.
