TUW is sad to confirm that distinguished actor Patrick Jordan (left), who so memorably portrayed the character of Danvers in the episode 'Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling', passed away in February 2020 at the ripe old age of 96.
He was a stalwart of ITC shows, having also appeared in series such as 'The Persuaders', 'Randall and Hopkirk Deceased', 'UFO', 'Return of the Saint' and many others. Always putting in a great performance, Paddy, as he was known, also appeared in the James Bond film 'You Only Live Twice' and will always be remembered for his small role in 'Star Wars' for which he was, along with Alec Guinness, offered a cut of the film's profits, which he turned down in exchange for a one-off fee, something he would always jovialy regret.
TUW extends its sincerest sympathies to his surviving daughter Tessa, and his many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and friends. Click HERE for a more-detailed obituary from The Guardian.
