My guilty pleasure was Buccaneer which apparently almost everyone else and the critics hated. Thanks Bryan I enjoyed it for one.

Soon to be seen again as the landlord when TPtv resurrect the quality 70s afternoon drama Rooms in July.

A very useful actor who always delivered the goods. Despite moving to Australia in 1983 he made a surprise appearance in Robin of Sherwood three years later.

I did wonder what the story was here. He cropped up shows from down under bought in by ITV. Special Squad 'The Chen Legacy', and an afternoon serial called Golden Pennies.

I loved his turn in The Long Good Friday as the dodgy local councillor.

RIP Bryan.

I best remember him from "The Long Good Friday" he was brilliant as Harris the local councilor on Harold Shand's payroll. I often confused him with Randall and Hopkirk's Mike Pratt they looked so similar to me anyway.

"Warship" and "Armchair Thriller" for me, but one of those actors who turned up in so much and always delivered the goods.

Sad news.

You saying "Armchair Thriller" reminded me Bryan is leading man in the Brian Clemens 'Thriller' episode 'A Place to Die', broadcast in 1973.
