DONALD SINDEN R.I.P.
It is with sad news that TUW announces that the esteemed actor, Sir Donald Sinden, has died at the age of 90 after suffering from prostate cancer.
Sinden memorably portrayed the part of The Colonel in the episode "Many Happy Returns", although could remember little about his role when interviewed in later years.
He made his name largely as a Shakesperean actor on stage, but will also be fondly remembered for his film roles such as "The Cruel Sea", and his TV comedy roles such as "Never the Twain" and as the brother of Patrick Cargill (who of course appeared alongside him in "The Prisoner" too) in "Father Dear Father".
Unmutual Website would like to express its sincerest condolences to
Sir Donald's many family and friends. Click HERE
