The Vicar of Dibley is often on repeat here in the Hut, and Letitia Cropley’s manic muddling in the kitchen is one of our favorite parts of the show. Her portrayer, Liz Smith, veteran British theatre and screen actor, died on Christmas Eve at 95 years of age. A former WRNS member during World War II, Smith had her acting breakthrough in her 40s and went on to charm the British and American viewing public in Vicar, Lark Rise to Candleford, The Royle Family, and a long list of cinematic releases. Godspeed, Liz, thanks for all the laughs.
