I am amazed, considering how long Richard Briers smoked, that he is still alive and working until recently at the advanced age of 80!!!! I found his comments about his co-star on his TV show quite revealing. Felicity Kendel was on Strictly and after years of thinking I "knew" her from her TV roles, I rather disliked her!! I will never forget the kiss between her and Vincent YUCK!! Sadly, she appears to be a woman who still thinks she is a knock-out !! Her behaviour with Vincent was embarrassing to watch. Apparently, she has been a "fair weather friend" to Richard!
I was surprised to read about their strange friendship, as it certainly never showed on-screen that they weren't really that friendly. I wonder how Richard got on with (fellow smoker) Penelope Keith? He doesn't mention her in the article
