I'll not stoop to making any 'pussy' references... :-X

Fine actress, if a little typecast...never knew she was that old, though...

There can't be many of that original cast left now...RIP Moll'

Yes another sad for British comedy.

At the last count Frank Thornton, Nicholas Smith, Trevor Bannister and Mike Berry (yes the singer!) are still alive.

I watched "Are you being served" on PBS for a while (til they switched the programming).

She was great!

I'm sorry to hear of her passing.

RIP Mrs. Slocombe  :\'(
