I've just seen this news and it's knocked me for six. So, so sad. He was such a lovely man, so sociable and ready to chat to fans. I met him at Brit Sci-fi and he stood chatting for long after the other cast members had gone... RIP Gareth, you are a legend

He always had so much time for the fans. I met him a number of times at conventions and events, and he was always friendly and available. And it goes without saying he was a great actor, both on TV and on stage. Sad day.

So incredibly sad. He will live on in the flickering screen.

He was so good at giving Blake a constancy and made interviews relaxed and interesting. Sorry to hear this news.

So sad! As a 10 year old in 1982, my mother practically shoved me towards him to get his autograph, I was so shy. It was the first thing that came to my mind when I heard the news. RIP Gareth.

A shock and a very sad day. Another part of my childhood has now gone for ever. As has been said we can still enjoy his performances as Blake thanks to the flickering screen.

Thank you Gareth for playing such a huge part of my childhood and early adult life; and the continued part you played as I aged into my late 40s where I am today.

Very sad news! I was fortunate to have met him at a number of conventions, most recently at the one Clare Blues organised in Oxford in 2011. Also I saw him in the lead role in "Brother Cadfael: The Virgin in the Ice" at Malvern Theatre. He was always very approachable, a perfect gentleman!
