RIP Bernard Horsfall

That's a shame - saw him in the Brett version of Hound of the Baskervilles just on Sunday... Very distinctive voice, very familiar from many Dr Who appearances, and the Bond movie OHMSS

It was just announced on the Gallifrey convention's FB page, as he was scheduled to be a guest there next month

I didn't recognise the name so had to Google him but soon as I saw a picture I recognised him instantly.

RIP

Park of the backbone of the British TV industry, was in just about everything and was always memorable even in small thankless roles (like They Keep Killing Steed).

He is responsible for turning Patrick Troughton into Jon pertwee and thus starting my least favourite run of Who, but he couldn't have known.

Terrific actor. Guested in practically everything over the years, but I most remember him from his leading role in Enemy at the Door.

Re: RIP Bernard Horsfall

I loved his appearances on Doctor Who, especially as Chancellor Goth in The Deadly Assassin. I had no idea he was in On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Clearly I need to rewatch that film.

Rest in peace.

He's Campbell - the blonde curly haired guy who puts the safecracker in the crane and later tries to bluff his way up to the Piz Gloria, complaining that Blofeld can't own "the whole bloody Alp!"
