Jack Klugman has died aged 90.

For many he was famous as the slobbish Oscar in The Odd Couple but for me it was as the eponymous medical examiner Quincy ME that he really made is mark.

In later life he battled throat cancer and had to teach himself to speak again. No cause of death was given by the family.

One scene in Quincy that made me laugh every time I saw it was when he needed to get out of the Lab but had to show a troop of rookie cops what an ME did. In order to make them faint as quickly as possible he exposed them to some (not seen) gruesome procedure, making them faint one by one. There was one left at the end who refused to drop and so he sorted him out with the immortal phrase "and I call this cut the Lazy S".

RIP Jack.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.
