Best known as Avon in Blake's 7, although he had a long and varied acting career.

Yes, that was only last year, wasn't it? I remember being quite struck too.

Blake's 7 was a childhood favourite and Darrow was a key and distinctive part of the show. Sad to hear he's gone.

Edited to correct a schoolboy grammatical error.

Gosh, didn't know of the amputations! Sorry he had to go through that. I enjoyed him more in Blake's 7 than in Doctor Who (must've been in the Williams or Douglas Adams era when they were being ever so cutesy or even panto at times, argh).

r.i.p. Avon
