"A unique character"

Farewell to one of the most distinctive voices of British TV and film. For many, Peter Sallis will be remembered for the role that thrust him to national prominence: Clegg in Last Of The Summer Wine. For me, though, (as someone unamused by the antics of pensioners and bathtubs), he should be celebrated as the person who brought Nick Park's Wallace to brilliant life. There surely can't be any more adventures for the bumbling Yorkshire inventor and his canine companion without Sallis on hand to voice them - more's the pity.
