Hi Carol/Arcadia

I don’t know if there’s already a thread for Sherlock Holmes related R.I.P’s so please feel free to move this post. As there’s similar thread on the ripper forums (for authors/researchers etc who have died) I thought it might be an idea for one here?

I wanted to start it off with an R.I.P for the English actor Keith Barron who died today aged 83. He was an actor that will be less well known outside of the UK as, although he did film work, he was mainly known as a tv actor.
I’ll remember him as Bob Ferguson in the Grenada Holmes episode The Last Vampyre (based on the story The Sussex Vampire.)

This thread is a good idea, Herlock -- thanks for starting it.  I have moved it to the Sherlock Holmes Discussion area, and pinned it so people will be able to find it more easily.

 

I've seen The Last Vampyre, so I've seen at least a bit of Mr. Barron's work.  I recall his character only vaguely, but it was a large role and the Granada series was uniformly well done, so he was clearly an accomplished professional.

Sorry I haven't been around much lately, (family matters) but I agree with Carol ... good idea. Although I hope we don't have too many recent additions.... :wacko:

How awful.  Very sad for his family.  You'd think the job of camera operator wouldn't have to be fatal, or carry with it the high risk of injury and/or death, like, I don't know . . .infantry soldier or correspondent in a war zone.  Filming pretend stories for entertainment shouldn't have such grave outcomes.

 

This photo captured a lighter moment in Mark's life.  He looks to be 'on duty' behind the camera, so when Martin Freeman smirks like that in his colleague's direction, is that Dr. Watson smirking at Sherlock or is that Martin preparing to make a crack to Benedict?  Our diminutive Doctor is a live wire in person.  No double-barreled bird flips in this shot, however.  Note the very Hobbit-y ensemble of green trousers and waistcoat.

Lovely photo, terrible news.  :(

 

Added:  Mark Milsome was camera operator for seven episodes of Sherlock, from Blind Banker through Sign of Three.

 

(Alex and I may have seen him at work on the North Gower shoot for Sign.  I would check our photos, but have had no way of sharing them since PhotoBucket changed the rules.)

You could use tinypic.com It's full of ads but it works - yet.

Thanks. I'm a bit leery after the PB incident, but I believe I even have a Tinypic account (some forum where I wanted to post actually required I use that site for my avatar). I'm certainly in no rush to port over all the pictures that I've already posted here (to Tinypic or anywhere else) -- once burnt, twice shy -- but I may try that for future postings.
