As a fan of radio comedy, I know she was a legend in that field alone before we even get onto her TV career. The list of people she has worked with over the years is stunning and she was always invited back to do more. She was also adored by fans of comedy whether it was old style comedy or more alternative stuff.
I'm away to watch her Minder episode in tribute to her and see her pit her wits against another acting great.

By all accounts a very nice lady and without doubt a consummate professional - when you look back through her illustrious career and see what she was a part of : Hancock's blood doner sketch, The Glums, Carry On films and long running BBC sitcoms just scratch the surface. RIP dear lady

Always surprises me June Whitfield (a very good actress) never appeared in any of Nigel Kneales's or Rudolf Cartier's work from the early days of the BBC. I think she would have been a good guest star on Callan (would have like to have seen her in Amos Green Must Live in Annette Crosbie's role) or in The Sweeney in the role Diana Dors had. But she had a huge body of work. We shall not see the likes of her again.
