I remember him well when I was a teenager with his programs.

My first TV encounter with David Frost was when he, and his colleagues, wede broadcasting "That Was the Week that Was", a political satire back way then.

I am sorry to hear of his passing, and only a few years older than this coffin dodger.

R.I.P Sir David Frost
It's good to be back amongst friends and colleagues

Hello, good evening, and welcome!

Yep, TW3 was a groundbreaking show, which started off very many other satire based ones. I'm really sorry that he has gone. Not many people are legends in their own lifetime, he most definitely was one.

RIP David.

David (checks his clipboard) Frost will be missed.
A strange and rare cross-over from the world of satire into fairly serious commentator with a very insightful eye and ear that made him excel at both.

And he went out on style on the MS Queen Elizabeth, and along the way collected a real Lady as a wife, the daughter of the 17th Duke of Norfolk. At present the cruise ship is half way from Southampton to Lisbon.

David Frost, one of the best.
RIP.
