It's probably my long abiding love of the Avon character that got me into so called 'cult tv' in the first place. Thank you Mr Darrow. RIP.

Seriously sad news, Paul Darrow owned that character, he made Avon mesmerising to watch, and was the best character by far ( and they were all good) Avon's descent into paranoia and madness in series 4 was amazing to watch, leading up to the best dramatic and still shocking conclusion to any series.

Of course, he was hugely entertaining in all his roles in shows such as "Doctor Who", "Robin Hood", a nice cameo in an episode of "Haggard" and also another favourite of mine, "Virgin Of The Secret Service", in a role that would probably not be favourably looked upon today, but a great performance nevertheless.

A huge loss.
