The BBC have news that Paul Darrow (Avon in Blakes 7) has passed away after a short illness.

78 apparently - I wouldnt have put him that old but I guess B7 was nearly 40 years ago now :(

Oh dear, another one slips away. Last seen, I believe, on Pointless Celebrities where he was confined to a wheelchair. A great voice and a wonderful actor.

RIP Paul.

Yes, he was without legs, but with Michael / Vila, who had not really changed much at all.

One of Mr Darrow's best interviews was stateside.
