R I P Milo O'Shea from Steptoe and Son Ride Again

The terrific Milo O'Shea who has that wonderful scene as Dr. Popplewell in the second Steptoe film has passed away, his performance in Steptoe is a classic.

Very sad news, O'Shea has been a favorite since I was a kid, when I first saw him in "Theatre of Blood".
A remarkably distinguished career, his Dr Popplewell is iconic, never ceases to be funny.
RIP Milo

Very sad news, I always enjoyed Milo in his numerous character roles he played, from Steptoe and Son to Only the Lonely with John Candy.
An enjoyable presence who lit up the screen in whatever role he acted.
RIP

R.I.P. Milo. A brilliant cameo
