    Can someone explain to me what Trigger meant in the episode ‘Mother’s Nature Son’ when he tells Denzil that he doesn’t know what the Beatles’ manager has got to do with it? Appreciate an answer thanks :)

    • Rich says:

      Denzil said “That’s Derek Trotter not bloody Einstein!” Trigger thought The words ‘Bloody Einstein’ were ‘Brian Epstein’ who was The Beatles manager.

    Mum and I were lucky enough to meet
    Roger at the convention in 2011.
    He seemed like a lovely man, we were
    queuing for seven hours which meant he
    been signing that long. It is a great loss
    and we are glad we met him.

    We would of really liked to of met him again
    at the 2013 convention.
    Very sad loss.

    Of the many sayings trigg came out with , by far the funniest ( and I am laughing as I write this ) has got to be………

    ” Linda , nice girl , funny eye. You don’t know if she’s looking at you or waiting to see if a bus is coming ”

    No one else could have played trigger. No one.

    God bless Roger.

    Like everyone I was saddened to hear that Roger had passed away. Such a wonderful actor who brought joy and happiness to legions of fans. Feel fortunate that I was able to meet him at one of his many appearances organised by the appreciation society. I’ll never forget sitting and chatting to him on the replica set surrounded by all the props including Triggers infamous broom. God bless Roger Lloyd Pack and vive hooky street.

  8. Griff says:

    Feel like Roger was taken from us too soon.

    Rest in Peace, dear Roger.

    Trigger will forever live on.

    Our deepest condolences to Rogers family and friends. A wonderful actor and a generous person with his time for good causes. Thankfully Rogers talent has been captured on film with his various characters, funny and straight performances.

    RIP Roger! You are and will always be a true OFAH legend! Who will live on forever through OFAH and still be entertaining us all and the generations to come! As a tribute i’d like to share a few of my favoruite Quotes.

    Mike: I’ve had certificates for my beer.

    Trigger: Yeah, I’ve had a few days off work with it as well.

    Trigger: And that’s what I’ve done. Maintained it for 20 years. This old broom’s had 17 new heads and 14 new handles in its time.

    Sid: How the hell can it be the same bloody broom then?

    Trigger: There’s the picture. What more proof do you need?

  13. Matty Smith says:

    RIP Trigger!

  14. Perry says:

    thanks for that karl – yes we got a few complaints that Roger wasn’t there on the day but we only found out the day before he had cancer – he was planning to attend right up until the last minute but just couldn’t – he was that kind of guy, he didn’t want to let anyone down. Obviously I couldn’t say why he wasn’t there but hope everyone can now understand why.


    • Ashton says:

      Hi Perry I just wanted to ask you was Roger gonna have a main role in the sport relief or did he have like a short line of dialogue I would appreciate a response – Ashton

  15. Cushty says:

    Hope you’re up there with Mike giving him an earful about watering down the beer Trig my son.

    RIP Roger, a fantastic actor.

  16. Paul G says:

    Totally agree with the comments made so far… With OFH being a major part of life for 30 years, losing a cast member is a big loss and also a sign of the passing years. Trigger is a household name and will live on for years to come. His legacy is secure…

  17. Colin says:

    I am gutted at this sad news. It’s sad when anyone dies but as I am such a huge fan of only fools and I have grown up with the show. It always feels especially sad when someone involved in it passes away, it’s like losing a family member.

    My thoughts go out to his family and all I can say is thank you for the laughs roger. Rip

  18. Karl Cooper says:

    I was at the Only Fools Convention in Reading last year, which Roger was billed to attend. When the news reached us that he wasn’t to attend, everyone was gutted, to say the least.
    I was so glad that I purchased a convention poster, that Roger had pre-signed.
    As an OF&H member, I was sad to hear the news of Rogers passing and my thoughts go out to all his OF&H co-stars, all his actor friends and most of all, his family.
    He was a Great Actor — A Legend.
