TOO COOL TUESDAY TOUGHY QUESTION AND LAST WEEKS ANSWER


SINCE PETER CUSHING'S PASSING IN 1994, some interesting details about his career and life have surfaced, for sure. I suspect many in the industry knew about this, and this little fact has been several  published, but I suspect that this might get many you thinking. IF you do think you know the answer and want to added to the banner of 'those who cracked it' next week. Drop me a line : petercushingpcas@gmail.com . . . ANSWER NEXT WEEK. LAST WEEKS TOUGHY ANSWER BELOW . . .




THE ANSWER TO LAST WEEK'S TUESDAY TOUGHY!
THIS CORRECT ANSWER COMES FROM MARCIA, who correctly identified the THREE following CUSHING SHERLOCK productions. But THERE IS we find, ANOTHER one TOO! MARCIA'S answers are:  


ANSWERS:
1) The Abbot's Cry, the follow-up to Masks of Death.
2) Peter was offered a part in Jeremy Brett's 'The Last Vampyre' as the clergyman Merrydew
3) Not positive about this one, but producer Kevin Francis wanted to remake 'Hound of the Baskervilles' with the Hound animated by Ray Harryhausen, with Peter as Sherlock.



THE ADDITIONAL entry is what was to have been a one man show with Cushing as Sherlock. Peter passed on the opportunity and another actor filled the role.

Worth noting is Marcia's kind message about the website too! "Thanks for the notice on the Zoo Gang bluray and the great Doctor Who article. As neat as Moffat's including Peter's Doctor is, I still think of Peter's Doctor as an actual part of the canon, not just as an actor playing a role. I love his two films as the Doctor. And finally, I love The Last Meeting clips!! I watch them repeatedly and enjoy every minute. Look forward to this page everyday!"
Best wishes!
