R.I.P. DENNIS CHINNERY
The Unmutual Website is sad to announce that Dennis Chinnery, who played the gunrunner Gunther in the episode "Many Happy Returns", passed away on February 29th 2012. He was 85.
Fondly remembered for his roles in "Hancock's Half Hour", "The Avengers", "Doctor Who", and countless other TV shows and films, Dennis had recently been in touch with The Unmutual Website regarding his time on the series, which he fondly remembered; "I enjoyed it immensely...Patrick McGoohan was a very energetic performer... it's not an exaggeration to say he nearly strangled me for real....he was very apologetic afterwards".
In later life Dennis retired from acting to pursue his love of art. He was a kind and generous man who will be greatly missed by all who knew him. TUW extends its sincerest sympathies to his family and friends.
