He made his mark on more than one generation, he isn't really gone, just backstage.

He started to go deaf - he couldn't hear the audience laughing. In an interview, he said that at first, he put it down to just not being funny anymore.

I can just about remember his sitcom where he lived with Hattie Jacques & the bloke who did the Laughing Policeman lived next door.

Wattis was the neighbour, Guyler the local PC. Back in an age when we had Bobbies who you would welcome into your home, at least in sitcomland.

A very understated, very gentle, very British genius. Michael McIntyre is not fit to lick his boots.
