R.I.P. CONRAD PHILLIPS
Yet more sad news has reached The Unmutual today, with the news that actor Conrad Phillips, who played The Doctor in the episode 'The General', has passed away yesterday (13th January, the 7th anniversary of Patrick McGoohan's passing), at the age of 90.
Philips is probably best remembered for his role as swashbuckling hero 'William Tell' in the classic 1950s TV series, and a five-year recurring role as Christopher Meadows in the soap opera 'Emmerdale'.
Often referred to as 'the man who was in everything', Conrad appeared in many other ITC series from around the same era as 'The Prisoner', such as 'The Saint', and 'UFO'.
Conrad retired in 1992, his last role was in the comedy series 'Never the Twain', and lived his final years in a converted barn in Normandy.
The Unmutual Website would like to offer its sincerest condolences to his widow Jennie, two children, and two grandchildren, and all who knew this very talented and likeable actor. A further obituary from The Guardian can be read HERE.
