Very sad.

As the article suggests COVID took its toll on him in a big way .

David Soul that is a sad one remember Saturday nights watching Starsky and Hutch happy times

Did you aspire to the `Hutch` leather jacket or the `Starsky` chunky knit cardy?

I always wanted to do that roll across the car bonnet thing but never did - I doubt I`d be able to get up there now without breaking my neck!

RIP David, another memory of much simpler times slips away.

So sad. Talk about modern players playing out from the back - he was years ahead of his time. RIP

He was indeed way ahead of his time. A very sophisticated player and man who spoke perfect English. I admired everything about ‘The Kaiser’.

Yeah.  I remember listening to her over many years but had no idea that she was 83. I’d always assumed that she was of my generation - wrong!
