Tony Selby

It was reported on Thursday evening that Tony Selby, the actor who appeared in a number of classic British sitcoms including Get Some In and My Family as well as Dr Who and many other notable programmes and films, had died. It now appears that this was a case of mistaken identity.

The news appeared widely on social media. It seems that an announcement about a different Tony Selby who worked for the BBC appeared on Facebook. It was thought to refer to the actor and was picked up and quickly spread among comedy and Dr Who fans – the actor Tony Selby was known and admired for his recurring appearance in the long-running series.

Apologies for any confusion or distress caused.
