    Another lovely actor gone. Remember him best in I Claudius for some reason.

    Sad. I believe he married the actress who played his wife, Dora, in the Wexford series. Sweet. But to me, he will always be Tiberius in I Claudius.

    Me too, ladies. It was I, Claudius that came into my mind when I read the news on the train last night.
