I was saddened to hear of the death of one of my absolute favourite actors this morning, Peter Wyngarde. As a huge fan of the ITC shows of the sixties, you can imagine how much I enjoyed the louche character of Jason King and his impeccable dress sense - I still turn my cuffs up on my shirt today!
And, of course, he played Klytus in my top sci-fi movie, Flash Gordon. You can keep your new Star Wars and new Treks - if I stumble across Flash Gordon on the TV schedules, I will sit and watch it. He was also in The Prisoner (as a number 2), Doctor Who and the Avengers (in an episode once seen, never forgotten!)
And how many actors can say that?
