Being 39 I grew up with Ronnie on my TV and loved the show Porridge probably more than any other... Ronnie was a brilliant comic actor and most definately my favourite; while others watched new comic TV shows and raved about them I would always yearn for the re-runs of Porridge and the sharp humour of Norman Stanley Fletcher. Great Britain has lost a great man, pray let heaven find this one.

I was so sad to hear of the death of one of this countries greatest comedians, Ronnie's comedy is timeless and will I'm sure be enjoyed by generations to come. My sympathy goes out to his family who i hope will find a little comfort in the knowledge that Ronnie bought laughter and joy to many, many people. This country is all the poorer for his loss, he will be greatly missed.Goodnight and God bless Ronnie.

Like the rest of the nation, we all feel as if we've lost a friend. What a marvellous fund of TV and film coverage we have of Ronnie's extra special talents as a comedy actor over the years, we all have our favourite's (mine being the 2 Ronnies as cleaning ladies using utensils as instruments!) but Porridge stands in the pathenon of the greats (with Richard Beckinsale a great loss in his prime), so many of Ronnie's roles were true to life and brought so much enjoyment, many can recite excerpts from scripts and TV shows. As a previous comment, Ronnie is sure to be making those in heaven laugh/giggle and he has left us a rich legacy of humour for future generations to study.

On behalf of my family and millions of others, 'Sir' Ronnie Barker shall be sadly missed. He was a true comic genius and his TV legacy will forever be watched over and over again by generations to come. I host a live music event in Hull, and last night over 200 people applauded the memory of Ronnie Barker. He touched many and shall never be forgotten.

I was terribly saddened to hear of Ronnie's death. He was probably the best character/comedic actor this country has ever had. The episodes of Porridge etc will be treasured even more than they were before! You don't get to see a genius very often in a lifetime and I shall forever feel myself honoured that I was alive to experience one. Don't let 'em grind you down up there Ronnie!

He was a genius and we may not see the like of him again, in my opinion there will never been another actor that will match his diversity of performance

Whether it was Porridge or any other project Ronnie Barker was involved in, you could always get a laugh from the innuendo that never got crude, and often the word play was marvellous. Porridge especially, though the other programmes had some, showed a keen eye for observing the real dilemmas and problems we all face. A Prison? A pronounced stammer? Short sightedness? Who else would have carried these off and not been subject to a barrage of criticism? Thank you Mr. Barker, Thank you for the laughs.

Gutted by the news of Ronnie's passing. His physical appearance in Porridge bore an uncanny resemblance to my dad at around that time, especially in the "bad feet" sketch!

So..... It's good night from him. A very sad day. I will never forget the many hours I have sat glued to the box in the corner, rolling in laughter and admiration at Ronnie Barker's many guises. My favourite has to be Porridge, amazingly written and performed, Richard Beckinsale so cruelly taken from us all those years ago. Godper now has his Fletcher to talk to in heaven. Good night Ronnie and god bless - keep smiling. My thoughts to your family and close friends

After yesterday's news, I found this site and spent a good couple of hours laughing as I listened again to the man who was a comic genius. RIP Ronnie Barker, you will be sadly missed.
