    Actor Richard Briers, best known for his role in TV's The Good Life, has died at the age of 79, his agent has said.
    The star, who was also an accomplished stage actor, had been battling a serious lung condition for several years.
    Briers died "peacefully" at his London home on Sunday, his agent said.


    I've seen some episodes of the show over the years since I've been living here. What I saw I liked.

    Aww, a shame. He seemed like a genuinely nice chap. Very distinctive voice. Might have to watch Watership Down later

    News said he had emphysema, presumably from years of smoking. Not a nice way to go..

    The Good Life was a great show, Briers always seemed like an amicable guy and could be a good actor in more serious material when he needed to be (I recall he was the killer in a Midsomer Murders once).

    RIP
