As I posted on the Cutural Colossus thread.

I saw him once on the District line at Olympia. I heard him too: he had a very loud voice. That is my Brian Sewell story.

I enjoyed The Naked Pilgrim TV series following him on the Catholic pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela.

I saw at least some of that, Mike.

Always had a soft spot for him.

A fan of Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood's paintings.

I shall miss his waspish humour and distain.

kvelertak - 19 Sep 2015 18:42:52 (#15 of 39)

aka sustained disdain.

RIP BS.

I often didn't share his views, but I did enjoy his column.

He was a client at the accountancy practice I used to work in. He was a very friendly man.

He told the story of how he asked his mother what elocution lessons were. She replied: "They are something which you will never need."

This is entirely the fault of the RP thread.
