Very Sad News, that the actor Robert Hardy has died at Denville Hall, a retirement home for actors in the outskirts of London. Hardy was 91. An institution on UK TV for his performance as Siegfried in the long running drama series 'All Creatures Great and Small', various drama serials on the life of Sir Winston Churchill . .. he appeared in the huge 'Spread of the Eagle' historical drama with Peter Cushing for the BBC in 1963. He made 'Demons of The Mind' (1972) for Hammer Films with Shane Briant. His appearance in Granada tv's Sherlock Holmes episode, The Master Blackmailer, with Jeremy Brett and Edward Hardwicke, was a triumph! He recently appeared as Cornelius Fudge in the Harry Potter franchise , and who could ever forget his appearnace in the M R James, Christmas BBC Ghost Story?? But it was with Christopher Lee that he had a long friendship along with Patrick MacNee. He appeared with Lee in 'Dark Places' and the very good though sadly neglected 'A Feast at Midnight'....A long life and very full career, still sad to see him leave us though. . .
