Well, would you believe it? Frank Thornton just popped up in 'The Chase'! The question was 'What did Frank Thornton play in 'Are You Being Served?' The answer, of course, was Captain Peacock and the contestant, a young one, got it right!

I know what it feels like to have humour go over your head as a kid, Rob! At the beginning of the 'Are You Being Served?' series, my Mum was able to understand better than I could. At the end, she was asking me!

I was but an innocent young lad, all the Mrs Slocombe's Cat innuendo was lost on me 🙀😺

Frank Thornton was known as the tall 'Captain Peacock' in 'Are You Being Served' and its sequel 'Grace and Favour', not to mention 'Last of the Summer Wine' and a spattering of film roles, ranging from 'Carry On' films to such classics as 'Spanish Fly'.

I'm surprised he doesn't have any comments yet, so here's his first, together with a guess for 6ft.

RIP Frank Thornton (1921-2013)

You know as a youngster a lot of jokes flew over my head. A lot of 70's shows were well written and Frank always seemed to give off a tall prescence in that show.
