R.I.P. Norman Wisdom

Norman cheered me up on Sunday afternoons when my single-mum and my brothers had been to see my stroked, hospitalised dad. An idiot who knew he was a star but liked the people he was starring for. He stopped entertaining me when I got grown up.

Looking at this picture of him, I realise that those Sunday afternoons of his open-face slapstick made him as much of a hero to me as my dad, David Bowie and all the rest of my ‘rock me to sleep’ heroes were.
