Jerome Willis (1923 - 2014)

Only just learned of the passing of actor Jerome Willis - Dr Stevens in the Pertwee classic The Green Death. He died on 11th January. This was his only appearance in Doctor Who - but what a bloody good one. A wonderful performance - a very human sort of villainy.
I loved Jerome's little revisit to the part in Mark Gatiss' Global Conspiracy? - the spoof documentary on the DVD release (one of the best DVD extras ever). In this it transpires Dr Stevens did not die at Llanfairfach - but instead became Director General of the BBC...
