Anna Nicole Smith this morning, Ian Richardson this afternoon.

Despite his age, the latter is quite saddening - a fine, fine actor, who was still working hard right up to his death. It also means that he'll never get to appear in Doctor Who (despite the fact that every Who novel that Lance Parkin's ever written features a character based on him in some way), which is a shame, as you always suspected he'd be perfect for some villain or other at some point.

About this entry


I would have loved to see Ian Richardson in Who as well. Sigh...RIP.

I seem to remember Lance Parkin actually writing a short story featuring a Richardson Doctor for DWM. It was a lovely little piece, and his affection for the actor shone through...
