I didn't and had to learn everything."''²²Richard David Briers [[UsefulNotes/KnightFever CBE]] (14 January 1934 – 17 February 2013) was a much loved British actor, most famous for his role as Tom Good in ''Series/TheGoodLife''. Briers had a long and prolific television and stage career and occasionally appeared in high profile Hollywood films such as the 1994 film version of ''Film/MaryShelleysFrankenstein''.
