ACTOR Richard Briers, the star of classic BBC sitcom The Good Life which was filmed in Northwood, has died.
Mr Brier passed away at his London home on Sunday evening aged 79, after a long battle with lung disease, first diagnosed in 2008.
The Good Life, which ran between 1975 and 1978, centred around the antics of two neighbouring couples.
Mr Briers played Tom Good, and he starred alongside Felicity Kendall as his wife, Barbara.
Set in Surrey with all interior shots filmed at BBC studios, the homes of the two couples were actually located in Kewferry Road, Northwood.
