In memory of Derek Fowlds

For me Derek Fowlds, who died today at the age of 82, will always be Bernard Woolley from Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister.. He was the last of the remaining original Yes Minister stars, following the earlier deaths of Sir Nigel Hawthorne (Sir Humphrey Appleby) and Paul Eddington (Jim Hacker).

To that ends I am sharing this wonderful scene between Bernard and Sir Humphrey. It is from a series two Yes, Prime Minister episode Official Secrets.

RIP Mr. Fowlds.
