Gareth Thomas 1945 - 2016
Spaceresearcher
RIP Gareth Thomas. You were one of my heroes.

Just got the news this morning upon logging on. What a shock to the system.

It was comforting to read of all the great memories and moments that so many of you have shared. Thank you all very much.

I'm now picturing you watching a David Bowie concert in heaven.

My deepest condolences to all Gareth's family and friends.

Oh and though I never knew him personally, I have acted and enjoyed it so with the greatest respect and to honor Gareth Thomas's wishes.

What a lovely interview, thanks for the link. Gareth sounds very enthusiastic and upbeat, how fabulous to hear.

Great timing as well, I have just started to listen to my copy of The Children of the Stones, read by Gareth, halfway through, loving it, highly recommended.

Does anyone know when and where the funeral is/was held? Not that I want to go or anything, it's more about closure if you know what I mean...

Yes Meegat I do know. I was wondering that myself.
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.

I suppose had Gareth been more famous the details would be made public even if it was stressed that it was a private ceremony...

On another B7 mailing list, someone posted a link worth listen to / watch:

> Subject: [B7L] Gareth Thomas tribute by Stephen Greif on Radio Wales
>
> This interview is also available on Greif's website, though with some
> browsers it doesn't work. The You Tube version is accompanied by some
> fine screenshots.
>
> https://www.youtu...LxKCJATrck

It is a nice little interview with SGreif. 4:48, worth a watch/listen

Oh crap-a-rama !! First Ronnie Corbett and now our Gareth Sad
I hadn't even heard that Gareth was unwell, let alone deceased. We like to think of those stars we (have and still) look up to as being immortal in some sort of implausible; make that impossible way.
Just like the great WW1 philosopher Baldrick; I always wonder if the doctory boffins were to take the time to fill out the paperwork, twist some knobs, scratch some backs and transfer folks to a better hospital, then perhaps the patient's condition might be able to be upgraded from being a "dead" person to being an "alive" person once again ??
If the producers killing off the Liberator at the end of Season 3 wasn't bad enough, now nature and time are killing off our fave crew.
Roy Orbison's "Crying Over You" is rampantly ringing throughout my head like some type of hideously melodic tinnitus right at this moment..... it is about 3:05AM here now; was going to stumble into bed..... instead it now looks like I might be in for a bit of "The Way Back" methinks.
Vale Gareth, Vale Blake, Vale real talent..... Talent that never drowned out that natural, earthly humility that all the Delta Grades find so very refreshing and comforting.

P.s. Once I was a Beta, now I'm merely a pathetic Space Rat. A scuzzy rat without a ship, a commander or a mission...... I look up at Deltas and think; "You lucky bastards; you lucky, lucky bastards". Then I rant on about how after 5 years, they only turned me the right way up last week.........ooops; sorry, wrong franchise Wink

P.P.s. Blake is gone and the Federation has won. Servalan procures a new party dress and hosts yet another supremely lavishly gaudy dinner party with the drooling descendants of the Kartrashijenners, whilst the rest of the Fed's citizenry get a serving of basic nutrient rations and dehydrated water..... and that's if they're one of the privileged grades. Apparently, it wasn't much different back in the 20th and 21st centuries of the old Earth calendar........ I think there is something in that for all of us !?!?
Bwaaaaaahhhh !!

Neil C, "Blake" may be gone but we will never give up the fight for freedom. I think he'd want us to continue the good fight, and we intend to, right fellow Rebels?

It was today, in Eastbourne. The Supreme Commander and I were there.

It was a nice service in a lovely old church - Stephen Greif read two poems, Michael Keating and Paul Darrow gave tributes. Jan Chappell was there too, and Lisa Bowerman & Alistair Lock from Big Finish.

Supreme C had put together scrapbooks of photos of Gareth & his theatre reviews etc, and we'd also collated tributes that had been sent in by his fellow actors, together with those from his fans on the forum here. We'll be putting them up on the website as a permanent tribute article soon.

Hope that gives you closure, Meegat and Annie. And me - it's been a tough couple of weeks.

Thank you Travisina. It's brought a fresh wave of sadness, but at least I can stop waiting and wondering now. When you say Michael Keating and Paul Darrow gave tributes, I assume you mean they were both present?

Yes, they were there - they both spoke at the funeral service.

That's good to know. That he got a good send off and had a good turn out if you know what I mean. Bless him.

My feelings are the same Meegat.
I did not know whether it was appropriate to ask for manners in your country may differ from those in my country.

Thank you Travisina and Supreme Commander, your reply and effort are very much appreciated.
