Popular television actor and comedian David McPhail has died aged 76.
“It’s with the deepest sadness that I share with you the news that our wonderful husband, father and grandfather David McPhail died in his sleep last night,” McPhail’s son Matt McPhail posted on social media on Friday morning.
“He leaves a great big hole in our lives but not in our hearts. A truly beautiful man.”
Very sad news. David McPhail brought me and so many others so much happiness. I grew up loving A Week of It and McPhail and Gadsby. Best political satire of a generation. Also loved Seven periods with Mr Gormsby.
His portrayal of Muldoon was unmatchable.
Thoughts go to his family and friends.
