I, like many others, was very saddened by the news of the death of the great Ronnie Barker. He was my favourite comic actor and 'Porridge' is my favourite sitcom. I have all 21 episodes on DVD and watch them regularly. Ronnie was such a genius that it is hard to believe that Norman Stanley Fletcher and Arkwright wre played by the same actor. If further proof were needed of the man's popularity, then it was provided by the enormous success of his return with Ronnie C. for the Two Ronnies Sketchbook. Rest in peace, Ronnie. You will be sadly missed.

Thanks for all the times you made me chuckle.  I have watched the Porridge film dozens of times and still laugh out loud at the part were Ronnie is singing at the begining and Mackay tells him to form a Slade Prison glee club, and with perfect timing and wit he replys "GLEE" whilst looking around.  You will be missed

I was so sad to hear the news about Ronnie B, like Eric Morcombe before him, he will be greatly missed.  There is very little left to rave about in comedy any more, Ronnie B proved that being nice, respectful, polite and humble, ment that you don't have to shout from the roof tops to get noticed.  He was a A++++ celebrity not the D ---'s of today.

Ronnie Barker is simply incomparable.  His comic performances in The Two Ronnies and Open All Hours were outstanding but for me his towering achievement was his characterisation in Porridge.  It is one of those very few TV series which can be watched time and again because of it's superb comic scripts, clever plots and magnificent cast. But despite his eternal modesty and generosity in letting his talented supporting cast have their glory, Ronnie Barker's skill and artistry, both as a comic and straight actor, is shown to it's utmost in Porridge. A seemingly modest, unassuming and throughly likable person off screen, the amount of tributes paid to Ronnie B stands as to how much respect, love, thanks and affection he was regarded by his peers, colleagues and the British Public.  The best of good nights to you Ronnie.

Website: www.kiksports.com I grew up in the seventies & eighties watching shows like Porridge & The Two Ronnies and loved them.  But it is only when someone like Ronnie Barker dies that you learn about the true greatness he possessed.  What a great life, what a talent!.

A very sad lost the word genius is used far too often but doesn't even come close to describe the great Ronnie Barker.  I bet where ever he is now everyone is laughing.

What a gem to lose one of the best.  Always cheered you up if you needed a boost, I love most of his comedies especially Open all Hours.  We were shocked and surprised when we heard of his passing.  He will be missed, definitely one of life's greatest comics!

He was a true legend!  He really made me laugh, especially in porridge and the fork 'andles sketch!  He will be truly missed by fans all over the UK.

We in Orstralia are devastated by the loss of Ronnie Barker. Humble achievers are rare. Writers and performers with the genius of Ronnie Barker are treasured forever. Can knighthoods be given posthumourously?

I was very sad to learn of Ronnie Barkers death this week. I am a big fan of Porride, Open all Hours and the Two Ronnies programms, and I think it will be ages before we see an just as tanlented actor/comedian on britsh television. He was a very funny and gifted person and he will be surely missed by millions of people how have grown up in the presents of is talent.

They broke the mould when they made Ronnie - he was one of a kind. The nation has lost a true legend and a dear friend. Goodnight Ronnie, we'll all miss you. RIP mate, you've earned a well deserved rest.

The word genius is't quite enough to describe the late Ronnie Barker. A man of such versatility, verbal dexterity and sheer power to make people laugh the way he did (and will continue to do) makes it near impossible to sum up in words. Other than unique and now sadly missed.

I live in Malta and feel very fortunate that our main TV Station has shown 'Porridge', The Two Ronnies and 'Open all hours'. I feel that Ronnie Barker was a great comedian and i have watched his comedies over and over again. He certainly left a mark.

I was very upset to hear that Ronnie Barker had died, almost as if I had lost a family member. He was one of the best and could always cheer me up! The Two Ronnies was just brilliant and I have many good memories of watching it every Saturday night! God bless Ronnie. I'm sure you are bringing laughter to everyone upstairs!! x

Ronnie Barker and Fulton Mackay were one of the all time great double acts of British tv comedy.

I'm sorry to here the sad news of this great man's death, he brought me more laughs than i could have ever had earlier this year when i first saw him the two Ronnie's Sketch book, and a classic like this man will be sorely missed. RIP Ronnie Barker.
