Whilst enjoying the reconstruction of the first Avengers episode, I noticed that the name of Astor Sklair is given in the acknowledgements. Gratifyingly, this actor (playing the role of Detective Sgt Rogers in the episode) is still around and I wondered if anyone knew of his other roles (it looks like he stopped screen acting in the 60s) and what other things he has done afterwards.

It'd also be interesting to know how he helped out on the DVDs!

A better late than never reply... Only just found this while trawling through old threads.

Astor Sklair is indeed still around, nearly three years later, and in answer to the main question, he helped on the DVDs by supplying photos of him from the early 60s that were used in the reconstruction of Hot Snow. Smile

He's 88 now and "retired". If I wasn't retired at 88, I'd want to know why! Smile

Astor is a very helpful guy, he sent me some photos and a link to his myspace (I think... it was an early social platform some years ago).

So too did Spike Heatley, the bass player in the Dave Lee Trio, as featured in several Venus Smith episodes. Dave himself is on Google+ among other things, but they've both fallen silent recently; I hope they're okay.
