Actress Una Stubbs has passed away at the age of 84.

Best known for her roles in Sherlock, Worzel Gummidge, Till Death Us Do Part and EastEnders, the actress died at her home in Edinburgh, surrounded by family.

“We are desperately sad to have lost not only a wonderful actress, whose screen and stage career, spanning over 50 years, was so extraordinarily varied, from ‘Till Death Us Do Part’ to ‘Sherlock,’ as well as memorable performances in the West End, at the Old Vic, Donmar Warehouse, Sheffield Crucible and National Theatre, but also a wickedly funny, elegant, stylish, graceful, gracious and kind and constant friend,” her agent Rebecca Blond told BBC News.

Una’s first role was in the television show ‘Rush Hour’ in 1958, while her last major appearance was portraying Sherlock Holmes’ landlady Mrs Hudson in the BBC series Sherlock (2010-2017) alongside Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.
