I'm a massive fan of Rik, and even though he WILL be missed by millions of people, at least we have the great entertainment he left behind.... speaking of, I'm off to watch Bottom Live (1st one)

How will Man Down incorporate this? His character was amazing and an interesting counterpoint to Greg Davies.
