He was looking very old at the Dad's army museum in Thetford, when I last saw him - a sad loss. I think now of the main cast, only Ian Lavender is still with us.
RIP Bill.

Frank Williams who played Reverend Timothy Farthing was paying tribute to Bill Pertwee on BBC News. Said " That he saw him just last weekend on the Dads Army reunions."

RIP Bill.
If by main cast you mean the members of the platoon then you're right but Frank Williams and Pamela Cundell are both still alive

Ruddy 'ooligans.

RIP Bill say high to Napoleon.

It's actually quite ironic.I went to the seaside today at around the time of his death was announced we were at the beach. Children were in the sea and I thought of him in the scene in which they were marching in the sea. The Warden shouts out "Having a nice paddle".

It's a shame as Dad's Army would have been a lot poorer without his character.

Sad to hear of Bill's death. He was excellent as the Warden.

I hope he, and the surviving cast, have enjoyed the fact that the series is still shown and still gets good ratings.
