Tony Selby dead: EastEnders legend and Doctor Who star dies aged 83

The star passed away on Sunday, his management LCM Limited, confirmed with a tribute shared on social media on Monday.

"His renowned sense of humour will be missed by us all."

Tributes have poured in from fans online. One penned: "RIP Tony Selby (83) Glitz has headed home." A second added: "So sorry to hear this. I loved watching him. He was terrific." A third joined in: "Glitz really was an underrated character. Given one or two more appearances he couldíve been the Captain Jack or River Song of 80ís Who. RIP Tony Selby."

Tony's TV acting career led to him starring on many big British shows including a starring role in RAF National Service comedy Get Some In!, and a recurring role in Doctor Who as Sabalom Glitz.

Sad news. I was only watching him a couple of days ago in The Good Life, where he was of course brilliant as a rag and bone man who was making a tidy sum of money! And Talking Pictures TV showed Get Some In a year or two back which was the first time I'd seen it all the way through. He held that show together.

Rest in Peace

Ah that's a shame. Tony Selby had great comic timing. He was brilliant in Get some in and stole every scene he was in. I saw him a few days ago in an episode of The Sweeney. He was in loads of stuff. The Avengers, Dept S and Dr Who among others. RIP.
