Do you remember her with Cliff Richard in Summer Holiday and recently in Sherlock?

Oh that’s sad news. I loved her in the Cliff Richard films and as Alf Garnet’s daughter in ‘Till Death us do Part.’

RIP Una.

I remember her in Till Death Us Do Part many years ago and more recently in Sherlock.
Always liked her.
RIP Una.

Will be missed. She played so many good parts, in films and on TV, always a lovely smile.RIP Una.

I enjoyed all her performances too.

She was also Miss Bat in The Worst Witch and Sherlock Holmes's landlady Mrs. Hudson.

It's so sad. I grew up watching her on TV, in films and series. She encapsulated much that was the 60s to me. RIP Una.

Loved her in Sherlock, RIP.

Sad news.
She played an excellent Mrs Hudson.
I think it was presenting a painting programme BlueBell. I also remember her and Lionel Blair as captains in Give Us A Clue.

Fennel Thu 12-Aug-21 17:43:29

I loved her style too. Especially in the Alf Garnett series.
Which probably wouldn't be allowed to be shown now eg

Hetty58 Thu 12-Aug-21 17:53:14

Maybe it's just me but - I was really surprised that she was, so recently, still around!

Harris27 Thu 12-Aug-21 17:54:23

Loved her. Rip.

I think she featured in a Dairy Box advert, back in the day.
