Oh man, this is some very sad news. I love Wallace and Gromit and watched them when I was little. Sad to hear that the voice actor died. :(

RIP. He was a great voice actor for Wallace. Grew tired of Last of the Summer Wine, but thought Peter Sallis did a great job of protraying Clegg (he was the most likable of the trio, imo).

I loved watching Last of the Summer Wine, sadly it wasn't as good when Bill Owen died.

RIP Peter

It was interesting to read that Peter Sallis also had roles in other sitcoms, such as the older versions of Doctor Who and The Avengers.

Wrong Character, that's Gromit, he doesn't talk.

I placed Gromit because of the friendship that he had with Wallace. (Also, he was Wallace's dog.)

Oh right, sorry.
