While on the topic of ALS, should be noted that he was classmates with Stephen Hawking at St Albans.

Square Pegs was a slightly underrated show, but notable in that the theme song iirc was by The Waitresses, and sounded typical of their oeuvre.

British character actor and co-creator and writer of the sitcom All Gas And Gaiters, Edwin Apps reportedly dead: https://www.lanouvellerepublique.fr/deux-sevres/marais-peintre-et-scenariste-de-chapeau-melon-et-bottes-de-cuir-edwin-apps-est-decede

 

(Can't translate due to bloody accept terms of use pop up which kills Google Translate).

 

Many comedy roles particularly Whack-O in the late 1950s and Harry Worth shows, Steptoe And Son, but also the odd "serious role" (The Avengers). One of those you'd know if he popped up on your small screen. He was 89.

 

Church doings on the small screen

Gist: Died in his home in Liez, a small town north of Paris, where he lived as a full time painter/artist since the 1970s. Credits him as a writer of great skill, and light touch. He remained a regular actor on French TV, apparently, and wrote books on art and religious art. Had had several exhibitions of his artwork just before the pandemic and seems to have been a popular local figure in that part of France. Died on the 16th April, no cause of death given.

 

In The Avengers episode The Correct Way to Kill, he runs the gentlemans outfitters shop the conspiracy is using.
