In Pictures: The career of Frank Thornton

I love the series “Are You Being Served?” and I always try to catch it on PBS - it really makes me laugh! Captain Peacock was a great character and Frank Thornton will be missed. RIP, good sir.


It’s sort of weird that I was just introduced to Are You Being Served and Grace and Favor. We had actually just looked him up on Wikipedia a few weeks ago to see how old he was and if he was still alive.
