Richard Griffiths

Sad to wake to the news this morning of the death of actor Richard Griffiths.  He leaves a great body of stage, film and television work behind as a testament to his talent.

The 1990s series Pie in the Sky was a particular favourite of mine. Here Griffiths (as policeman and restaurateur Henry Crabbe) worked alongside Maggie Steed (Margaret Crabbe) and Malcolm Sinclair (Assistant Chief Constable Freddy Fisher).

I was fortunate to see the three actors play together in Alan Bennett‘s The History Boys when the National Theatre stage production toured Australia in 2006 not to mention the entire ensemble cast.

Vale Richard Griffiths.
