Fucking poxy .
Not Tinker! Bugger
(Tho he was still alive tbf)
I know he had a pretty diverse cv but I saw him recently in the original Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) followed straight after in episode of The Protectors. He must have played villains in nearly every British series of the Sixties and Seventies.
He popped up all over the place!
He regularly used to trundle up through cockmills at Glastonbury in his smart car after performing in the kids field, and I last saw him at a festival in Wiltshire a few years ago.
One of my favourite actors. R.I.P.
Saw him in The Sweeney, I think. He lived round our way. I saw him in the chippy in St Just once.
I bumped into him once in a cinema in the Kings Road. He struck me as being an all round good egg. Shame, sad news.
The BBC report makes no mention of partners or family.
He was many, many things. But he is best loved to me as Mr Carter in the Beiderbecke Trilogy.
Goodbye, Mr Carter.
Looking through his career, I see he was in the stud.
Favourite celeb who shared my birthday RIP
I wasn't surprised to hear as I'd seen the vid of him in support of the NHS and knew he was very ill
He was a great actor - so many roles over the years.
Sad news. First noticed him as the kings agent in Ken Russell's The Devils one of his best film roles.
Spoiler: Some More Pictures
1957 - laughing at Richard Harris in Joan Littlewood's production of 'You Won't always Be On Top'. To his right Stephen Lewis, to his left Brian Murphy and Murray Melvin.
1971. The Devils. Listening unimpressed as Brian Murphy and Max Adrian describe the outcome of their 'medical examination'.
1980. Offering to sort out Brian Murphy for Yootha Joyce in the film of 'George and Mildred'.
Used to see him around locally all the time. Always seemed to me to be a decent bloke.
