Geoffrey Bayldon passed away on 10th May aged 93. He appeared in two episodes of The Avengers, series 1 story "The Deadly Air" and "Escape in Time" in series 6.



Unsurprisingly most of the obituaries have concentrated on his most famous roles of Catweazle and The Crowman in Worzel Gummidge, but The Guardian makes mention of his earlier performances: https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2017/may/11/geoffrey-bayldon-obituary-catweazle

I was lucky to meet both Geoffrey Bayldon and Moray Watson a few years ago. Both were charming people and generous with their time, sadly they have both now gone.



RIP.

A good old age and some iconic characters. He played a lot of wizened character but they were all very different.

RIP

We didn't really get Catweazle here - although I have a friend who sometimes talks about electrickery - it was in a kids afternoon slot so while I watched lots of Doctor Who and the like, I missed that.

Very sad news, always entertaining to watch or listen to on audio!
