Over the weekend, Larry Hagman sadly passed away. He played one of the most famous TV characters of all time – J.R. Ewing in Dallas.

The show that was famous for its mysteries including ‘Who Shot J.R.?’ and of course, an entire season of the show revealed to be a dream from one of the characters.

There have not been many shows that have captured huge audiences in the way that Dallas did; even though I was a bit young for it, I have been watching the remake on Channel 5, and J.R. Ewing is still an iconic character.

If any of you missed it last night, Channel 5 had a documentary fronted by John Barrowman, and narrated by our very own John Sackville, try and have a watch.
