RIP Wendy Richard
I'm a fan of the long running British sitcom "Are You Being Served?" so I'm sad to hear that Wendy Richard passed away. She played Miss Brahms during the whole run of the show from 1973-1985. She also played in the sequel called "Are you Being Served Again? (US Title) for two more years.
She was in the British soap opera "East Enders" for many years.
But I knew her as the Cockneyed Miss Brahms. She was the frequent victim of sexual harassment by Mr. Lucas and Captain Peacock when she was younger. Being that it was the 70's, it was considered okay. Her accent was the punchline and set up to many jokes.
She was only 65, which makes her younger than some of the cast of "Being Served" was when the show aired.
