I am only a teenager but I feel that we have lost one of the best people we have - Ronnie Barker.  I actually cried when my friend had told me he had died.  I still can't believe it.  My thoughts are with his family and friends.

I shared my love of Ronnie Barker's work (especially porridge) with my late grandfather!  Ronnie B is a true legend!  His ability to make people laugh was well known, but I think his skills as a fabulous actor were less credited someone like him will always live on.  R.I.P Ronnie B

Love the site, I have been testing Google and uploaded the Missing Pineapple chunks ep, (URI deleted).  Does this work ok, strange how they allow it - but could be useful to anyone wanting to stream video for free.

The dutch television broadcasted a lot of shows from the BBC.  Like Rising Damp, Dad's Army, George & Mildred, The Two Ronnies, Fools and Horses and of course Porridge.  I really became adicted to British sitcom and I still am.  Ronnie Barker will never die cause he and his fellow comedians left us with a magnificent inheritance wich gives a lot of laughter even after thirty years.  This site is the evidence.

Ronnie Barker, a true genius, a term which is used far too willy nilly.  But not in this case. A man who will be entertaining millions until the end of time. Hopefully you, Mr Mackay and Godber are up there right now working on a new series.  I look forward to seing it someday.

Was so sad to hear the news of Ronnie's death, he was and always will be in my opinion a giant of a man in the world of comedy, and man who brought so much laughter into this world, and never really wanted anything in return.  Everything the man touched turned to gold, this showed what a genius he was.  He will be missed by millions, but he will always be remembered and never forgotton.  Hevean is now an even better place for his presence, and I'm sure he will have them laughing like mad there.  God Bless you Ronnie. Also not spamming but I'd also like to say I run a site for Only Fools and Horses and of course one of his best mates David Jason is the star of this show, and my visitors have also left their tributes to the great man, if you wish to read then please goto (URI deleted).  Thank you

I'm 37, and grew up in the seventies watching all those great sitcoms, which are nowadays rightly regarded as 'classics'.  Porridge was always one of my favourites, Ronnie's delivery of Clement and La Frenais' lines was spot on, he was a naturally funny man and to have such great writers behind him on Porridge, as well as a great supporting cast, just made it so perfect. His ability to look and sound so different on his other shows, such as The Two Ronnies and Open All Hours, made him stand out all the more as a unique talent. I look forward to the planned releases from the BBC on October 31st 2005 in which four Ronnie Barker DVD's will be available, they are: Seven of One(1973), The Magnificent Evans(1984), Clarence(1988) and the fourth and final series of Open All Hours(1985). Also, still to enjoy is Ronnie's final TV appearance in the Christmas edition of The Two Ronnies' Sketchbook which of course will be braodcasted during the 2005 festive period. So, thank you for the laughter Ronnie B, or as your pal David Jason rightly called you - The Governor. Note from Porridge Webmaster: Thanks for the info Mark.  I had no idea about these DVD releases.  Well overdue.

So shocked to hear about Ronnie's death earlier this week.  We have lost one of the best comic actors ever!  Who would think that Fletcher/Arkwright were one and the same man.  A Genius.  One nice thought is that at least Fletch and Godber are reunited.  I am now off to watch the first series of Porridge.  God bless Ronnie and thanks for all the laughs you have given us.

Excellent site.  Ronnie Barker made us all laugh in some way or another.  I'm sure that everyone who reads this will remember some series or other that he has written or appeared in which has made them laugh till their sides hurt.  He will be missed but not forgotten his comic geninus will live on for a very long time yet.

Was saddened by the news of Ronnie Barker's death on Tuesday, a great loss to us all.  Porridge my all time favourite.  His genius and fellow cast members cheer up any dull day and not to forget some cracking dramtic moments too.  Came home after work and watched season 1, and laughed.  Remember "Don't let the Ba****ds grind you down" next time work gets too much (works for me!)
