    The Film forum has a similar thread to this and I thought it would be a good idea to do it for the Television forum.

    He was great in small recurring role in Without A Trace as Anthony LaPaglia father.



    Also his daughter was Drusilla on Buffy and Angel.

    Good idea for a thread, always wondered why there wasn't one. Well not always obviously.

    John Heard has died aged 72.

    Probably best known for being the Dad in Home Alone.

    But he was in The Sopranos which he was nominated for an Emmy for his role as a dirty cop.

    Also starred in Prison Break as Sara's Dad.

    Deborah Watling, who played Victoria on 'Doctor Who' in the '60s, died aged 69 URL="http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-40684318"]source[/URL. Unfortunately, due to BBC idiocy, much of her adventures have been lost but she got to star in the classic 'Tomb of the Cybermen', which featured the Telosian cybermen for the first time I believe.

    It's less than a year since he passed away so I'm going to remember Robert Vaughn aka Napoleon Solo in The Man from U.N.C.L.E.....

    He was fantastic. Also something of an historian. He scripted and presented a documentary on Gordon of Khartoum. I was only watching it last week. But I loved him in All CGAS. A little bit eccentric in the role of Siegfried but just great. RIP

    Robert Hardy was one of a long line of actors who played Winston Churchill in TV dramas over the years. Newer members of the club include our own Brendan Gleeson and most recently John Lithgow in 'The Crown'.

    Outside of acting, I believe Hardy was a bit of a world expert in the field of archery - the history of bows and arrows.

    Former BBC Look North and Tyne Tees presenter Mike Neville has died aged 80.

    While he was barely known outside of North East England (aside from a few appearances on the BBC's Nationwide), he was to that region what Richard Whiteley was to Yorkshire and Fred Dinenage is to the South.
