It's my sad duty to report the death of actor John Normington, who appeared in the Torchwood episode "Ghost Machine" last November. He played Tom Flanagan, a former WWII evacuee who'd relocated to Cardiff following the end of the war. Normington's scenes, coupled with Helen Raynor's somewhat poetic script, packed a real emotional punch.
Normington also appeared in several 'classic' adventures from the original 1963-89 run of Doctor Who. He played the villainous Trau Morgus in Peter Davison's final story "The Caves of Androzani", and starred opposite Shelia Hancock in 1988's "The Happiness Patrol" - a somewhat flawed adventure featuring the horrendous Kandyman.
My sympathies extend to John's family and friends.
