The last actor to play Steed (not counting the 1998 film) gone too. Crying or Very sad

Sad news. I loved him in The Avengers (obviously) and also as the one detective who came up to Holmes's standards in the Granada Television "Sherlock Holmes" series with Jeremy Brett. His son is a great actor too. Detectorists with Dame Diana Rigg amongst other triumphs.

So sorry to hear that. Like Frankymole, I loved him in the Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes episode.
Other than Diana Rigg, I believe he was the last surviving cast member of "Who's Who???"
