Ian Carmichael - Telegraph
"Ian Carmichael, the actor, who died on February 5 aged 89, personified the affable, archetypal silly ass Englishman in scores of revues, light comedies, films and television programmes. "
"Few comedians knew how to look more comically, humanly afraid. His apprehensive subaltern — standing rigidly to attention on the parade ground as an offstage sergeant barked a string of commands which he knew he would never be able, as expected, to repeat to his platoon — was a model of silent, facial panic. "
Ian was really funny - a great foil to Peter Sellars and Terry Thomas - but always having a dig at himself and that accent was so good.
