    So that's two Who deaths and they say it comes in threes. I let my Who compendium fall open where it may. Looks like it's Bonnie Langford......

    The press definitely need to cover Philip Latham and Louis Mahoney's deaths. Imho.

    Additionally it seems that Louis Mahoney, Gambian born actor who had various roles in Doctor Who, has died aged 81: IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0537158/ Also played the doctor in The Germans for Fawlty Towers.

    Tell your journalist friends, nobody seems to know and it would be a shame if he left us without a proper tribute/obit.

    Delegation. Jesus nobody wants to talk about the band - they just "formed". Bailey's everywhere on the net but nothing on his background except he was born and raised in Jamaica (sound familiar?) so will we ever know? Len Coley: interesting snippet here: I found this regarding a Roddy Harris from 2013: https://www.skiddle.com/whats-on/York/The-Old-Ebor/Roddy-Harris/11821734/ Whether it is our Roddy Harris, who knows, but the repertoire sounds promising. So, York maybe? For Ray Patterson, I guess you could contact this Twitter poster:

    Deep Feeling. Hmm. Problems sorting anything out, but this page from 2018 indicates they are all dead except Derek Elson: https://theseconddisc.com/2018/06/20/do-you-wanna-dance-pop-and-prog-meet-on-cherry-reds-expanded-deep-feeling/ Seems Elson worked at the BBC but I can't find much on this.

    British Character Actors

    As discussed on the British Science Fiction thread, it looks like Philip Latham has died: http://announcements.telegraph.co.uk/deaths/242684/latham DDP Pick for me. Films include The Dambusters, Dracula, Prince of Darkness (as an eminently sinister Klove) and Force 10 From Navarone, TV includes The Troubleshooters, Danger Man, Mogul, The Pallisers and of course Doctor Who. IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0490108/

    Bugger. Points for me perhaps in due course, but I'm really sad.

    Interestingly his IMDB says he was living on Stow On The Wold in 2009 - mention of Stow Surgery in the Death Notice seems to confirm it is him? One of our great character actors gone if so.

    Well, there's nothing to indicate it is the same guy except the full name. It does look like Philip Latham, a DDP Pick for me, has died if this death notice is anything to go by: http://announcements.telegraph.co.uk/deaths/242684/latham Lord President Borusa in The Five Doctors. Maybe msc or Bibliogryphon could use their contacts to confirm?
