Iconic star Frank Windsor dies at home surrounded by family.

In addition to his participation in various well-known British television series, he also played the role Tobin in the Avengers episode Whoever Shot Poor George Oblique Stroke XR40? (1968). Curiously, I found for myself that Frank was the brightest and most memorable actor in this episode.



This year I collaborated with Alan Hayes to create a short biography of Frank Windsor on the Randall and Hopkirk website.

RIP, Detective John Watt. Sad

Excellent article from Telegraph newspaper:

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/obituaries/2020/10/02/frank-windsor-actor-became-household-name-1960s-ds-john-watt/

By the way, the article reveals that full name of Frank is Frank Windsor Higgins.

Ah, shame. Loved him in Z-Cars and his Dr Who appearances.
