    RIP Michael Bond, by all accounts a true gent. But Paddington Bear will live forever.

    As will M. Pamplemousse and Pommes Frites.

    He lost his “voice” 23 years ago, though I don’t know whether his creator and voice ever actually met.

    Oh come now. That headline is just wrong. Paddington Bear did not die….

    This being a musicians’ website let’s celebrate the composer of that iconic theme tune – Herbert Chappell.
