Did You Know?
By 1976 it was clear that Michael Bates
was ill. The cancer which was to eventually kill him meant the strenuous walking through the hills became impossible. He was written out of the series and his noticeable gap was filled by Brian Wilde
, who had already become known as Mr. Barrowclough in Porridge
(1974). Michael Bates did continue to appear in his other success, It Ain't Half Hot Mum
(1974), but died soon after. See more
