Always sad to think how young Richard Beckinsale died, he was only 32. He was a brilliant character and all round actor in porridge, rising damp and other productions - what would have become of this young talent if he were still here today? Sad

I was just a bit to young to know at the time but what did happen to Richard beckinsale? Just hear rumours. My gran still comments even now when he's on that it's a right shame he died. His daughters are doing him proud tho

Yes, so sad indeed, he was very telented and apparently easy to work with. Both in Rising Damp and Porridge he played those parts so well. I am certain that he would have gone onto acting in major films and probably gone to America.
