In a statement, the actress’ agent said, via Deadline, “She was also a highly respected and exhibited artist. We will miss her enormously and remember her always.” Taking to Instagram, Steven Moffat recalled spending some good moments with the ‘loveliest light’ on Baker Street. “What a woman, what a talent, what a star - and just about the kindest, nicest and funniest person you could meet,” he added. Adding some of the names of the iconic movies that Stubbs has been a part of, Moffat added, “I don’t know how anyone even starts summing up that career - Till Death Us Do Part, Fawlty Towers, the incomparable Aunt Sally in Worzel Gummidge...and of course, the irreplaceable heart and soul of Sherlock,” he added.
