Norman's death closes a chapter of entertainment history
Norman Wisdom's death extinguishes the galaxy of British stars with whom he performed, many now sadly departed, which included Hattie Jacques, Margaret Rutherford, Michael Caine, Oliver Reed, Alfred Marks, Susannah York, Fenella Fielding, Honor Blackman, Leslie Phillips, Joan Sims, Diana Dors, Gilbert Harding, Terry-Thomas, Millicent Martin, Richard Briers, Bernard Cribbins, Michael Bentine, Harry H. Corbett, Stanley Holloway, Wilfrid Hyde-White and even Britt Ekland.
What set Norman's humour apart from that of today - he never resorted to smut.
It's hard to believe he was born during World War 1 and was still acting, in 2007.
BTW, this is the second time Norman has died for on 28 December 2008 Sky News announced that Wisdom had died!
R.I.P. Norman, you left people with happy memories and a smile in their hearts.
